On Site Ammonia

Gen­er­ate ammo­nia on a farm using solar pow­er and water. New tech­niques for using low pow­er plas­mas for pro­duc­ing Ammo­nia are pos­si­ble. This would allow a farmer to pro­duce Ammo­nia at their farm instead of ship­ping it in. Ammo­nia can … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Hydroponics using just energy and (sea?) water

So you can make Ammo­nia (NH3) by tak­ing water mol­e­cules, split­ting it into H2 and O2 via hydroli­sis­ers, and then using a plas­ma (or the Haber Bosch tech­nique) to com­bine the H2 with Nitro­gen from the air to pro­duce Ammo­nia … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Desalination via alternating current

Water flows through a rec­tan­gu­lar pipe with some elec­tro mag­nets on the out­side: elec­tro mag­net —————- ======>water====> —————- elec­tro mag­net If you turn on the mag­nets all the chlo­rine (and a bunch of water) would go to one side, and … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Automated Hydrogen Generation Plants

I was super excit­ed to see that hydro­gen fuel cell cars were final­ly here. Cars with zero emis­sions, just water. And a fuel that can be pro­duced using water and ener­gy. And then I did some research and human­i­ty dis­ap­point­ed … Con­tin­ue read­ing
