Thermal Hydrogen Invention Drive and Video Series
Thank you for your interest. This is a fundraiser for the modeling and legal team for the patent applications for 35 inventions. These inventions enable a ~100% emissions free energy economy, accomplished through teamwork among energy suppliers, for the economic distribution of emissions free liquid fuels.
The set of inventions constitutes the "Thermal Hydrogen" economy, named after the strategy of heat distribution through chemicals. The inventions, as well as an implementation plan, are introduced over an 8 part video series located at this website:
Essential to the implementation plan is a centralized pipeline system envisioned for the interior of each continent consisting of syngas, oxygen, and CO2. A new company, Thermal Hydrogen Industries, will develop these pipelines. This company is well positioned to do so given that it will own the intellectual property which makes the pipeline system valuable.
Emissions free liquid fuels (or “hydrogen carriers”) will be created at strategic locations along the pipeline system, and the fuels are envisioned to be distributed to consumers through the existing infrastructure system.
The key insight of the economy is to use the pure oxygen produced from electrolysis (using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen) to improve fossil fuels. Typically, hydrogen is the only utilized byproduct of electrolysis and the oxygen is “dumped”. However, in Thermal Hydrogen, the pure oxygen enables the fossil fuel exhaust to be “self-contained”—or never diluted with atmospheric nitrogen.
This is significant because it pre-empts the need for “Carbon Capture”, which separates the nitrogen gas, thought to be inherent to emissions free fossil fuels and makes up ~90% of the costs.
Furthermore, it should be mentioned that pure oxygen can improve fossil fuels, enabling a more advanced thermodynamic cycle. In Thermal Hydrogen, fossil fuels are most efficient, emissions free, water producing, and supply renewing (through EOR).
A peer reviewed paper was published in 2017 which showed that the concept was indeed economy-wide and resulted in a significant (~35%) efficiency improvement.
A utility patent application was submitted in 2018 for the first 4 inventions, and the international patent office found the claims to be "novel and inventive" and encouraged applications in member countries.
Thank you and I appreciate your help. For donations of $1000 or more, I'm offering a commemorative "Thermal Hydrogen" mug. Please visit thermalhydrogen.com/mugclub for more details.
