Mabon Posted August 14, 2007 Report Share Posted August 14, 2007 I know very little about this process, but have posted it here for reference and interest. There is a new energy technology which does not rely on fossil fuels, or refined fuels, and does not emit greenhouse gases. (See note below). The technology, Cavitation-Ignition Bubble Combustion (CIBC), has been analyzed by scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and NASA’s John Glenn Research Center, who have verified that the technology is feasible. Also, NASA verified that this energy could be produced without emitting any greenhouse gases. (Note: Greenhouse gases are produced, but not emitted.) This technology gives us a new class of engines that has a higher peak (bubble) temperature than internal combustion engines or diesels, therefore, producing a greater thermodynamic efficiency. As diesel engines already have a higher thermodynamic efficiency than gasoline internal combustion engines (Otto cycle), the potential is that the CIBC engine would now be the highest thermodynamic efficiency automotive engine to date. This new technology is capable of powering automobiles, farm equipment, generating electricity and a host of other applications. This technology can use any type of oil produced and/or manufactured including seed oils, grain oils, vegetable oils, used motor oil, used oil from McDonalds, and a host of others, all in an unrefined state. The engine has very few moving parts, requires no exotic materials, and is inexpensive to manufacture and operate. Any type of grain oil like corn, soybean, peanut, etc. can be used in lieu of fossil fuel. The oil proper is not burned. A very small vapor/air bubble entrained in the oil is burned. The oil simply acts as a carrier of the bubble. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
