Good lord what a waste of public funds and time. It wouldn't take a cost engineer more than a week to come up with a decent cost model. The whole thing could be done for less than $2,000. $10,000 if you want something fancy. kforestcat
So... James Hansen’s GISS has come up with another climate model??? Hee, hee, hee... No doubt the new model is based on the GISS’s corrupted database and climate models. And the GISS “temporary solution” to Hansen’s invented climate hysteria? To somehow get Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East to adopt Europe’s auto emission standards?....Ha ha ha...(rolling on the floor - can’t stop laughing - uncontrollable tears). I have a better idea. Let’s fire Hansen, get the GISS out climate research, get NASA working on serious projects, save the taxpayers billions, and move on.
I looked at the feasibility of this several months ago –from the perspective of research investment. It does not look promising at all. The main problems are: very low conversion – roughly 5% and exceptionally high energy requirements. The process also suffers from the usual problem of researchers failing to address H2 separation after conversion. It doesn’t do any good to get low conversion without an economical means of separating the “fuel” from the inerts/steam. While I have worked with Sandia on other projects, at this stage I would place this “technology" firmly in the snake oil category.
