From a strictly commercial point of view, carbon dioxide capture  and storage has been ongoing since 1972 with the advent of EOR (enhanced oil recovery).  With the advent of the Wittemann process in 1874 for beverage and chemical applications is when CO2 capture initiated as an independent industry.   The shell-and-tube heat exchanger refrigeration method is and remains the predominant method for capturing carbon dioxide  commercially and requires no rights licensing to design and build such an array using the services of  a registered professional engineer in hydrocarbon engineering. 

It is therefore my formal recommendation for you to identify the CCS/CCUS facility nearest you for technical advice prior to your utility or firm engaging in such activities. There is always room for new carbon dioxide industrial-grade suppliers.

Text Box: Please click here to view a postwar-era UK chart which shows the range of  products which were and can be made through MSW-plus-coal gasification.  In conjunction with today’s emissions control technology, this gasification process provides a near-zero carbon output option for dealing with suburban and municipal trash.  The document from whence the above chart derives, the Parsons-Brinckerhoff history of UK coal gasification from the 18th century to the 1960’s, is given here.

Coal provides for a stable burn at a cost 1/3 that of natural gas  with the ash processed for roadbed and other civil engineering applications.  The resultant consistent flow of CO + H2 (syngas) provides for chemical manufacture using processes many of which were developed successfully over a century ago and at a price point which is highly competitive with conventional natural gas & petroleum refinery processes.  

The periodical  “Waste Management World” showcases new arrays being built worldwide to serve as a practical & profit-generating mode for disposal of, amongst other trash, plastic waste.  

At some point in the near future, this technique may be modified to allow of biological pathogen disposal plants and their resultant sludge cost-effectively.  

The zero-emissions option best suited IMO is plasma gasification as pioneered by Plasco Conversion Technologies as shown here.  As ever in the development of Western technologies, it appears that patent rights wars are holding up further development.  As shown, the excess heat from drying & combustion is used to make steam for power generation and for the execution of chemical manufacture.  Coal as ever is the optimum thermal substrate which makes of continuous feed and stable combustion a  practical, “no drama” and cost-effective process. 

There is otherwise no further reason nor excuse for universal humanity, no matter how wealthy or poor, to continue  drinking nor bathing in their own excrement,  thereby perpetuating the recurrence of plagues such as we experience now and which effluvia is presently flavored with scrumptuous pass-through psychomeds and antibiotics.    Bon appétit!

A research grant to the American Water Works Association to craft such a prototype array as described above is the way forward.   

At present in the USA, there are approximately 200 sewage sludge incineration plants neutralizing 14% of total annual sewage volume, 40% of treated sludge is spread on agricultural and silvicultural land as soil reclamation and fertilizer supplements while the balance enters our rivers, lakes and aquifers.

Your tapwater filter medium is made from coal.

Text Box: Archive of technical papers #2.  discusses  empirically modeling  causality chains, Prigogene & Frenkel quantum and chaos theories, Langlands automorphic geometric theory and a Lyapunov systems equilibrium overview presented in basic expressions, plus how all of #1. and #2. archives taken as a whole address quantum–base real-world cosmologies  to include on both a biochemical and astrophysical scale,  AI and quantum computing.   Dr. Bishop’s enclosed “Austin-Brussels” papers 1. and 2. are the keys to this treasure-house of practical knowledge which also applies to plant operations real-time and predictive cost control.

In addition are enclosed instructions so as to convert a standard PC to run in machine-learning & cortical processing  mode using memristors or “thermodynamic RAM” as well as (2) industry-creating papers by Professors Molter and Nugent  on the topic of post-von Neumann based AI-driven operational analysis. 

You too can be the next Professors Rachel Rosen, Lee Smolin, Vera Rubin or Tarski:  just add hard work, effective learning practice, a sense of humour and goodwill...and luck.

The database  from which the following powerplant financial simulation models  are derived is a product of the application of principles found in these two archives.  For current related powerplant AI projects, please see the Website GROUNDAI.com.
