The economy consists of 3 main "economic agents",
shown as "EA's" in the figures above, which enable dispatchable supply/demand and efficient, emissions free, energy distribution.
The purpose of the Thermal Hydrogen economy is to distribute energy
-- emissions free --
with minimal pneumatic work and minimal waste heat
EA #1 Bi-directional power plants
(electrolyser / turbine combo)
EA # 2 Dual Fuel Heat Sources
(Electric heat varying w NH3 combustion)
EA # 3 Oxyfuel Hybrid Electric Vehicles
(Plug-in EV w/ SOFC range extender)
Thermal Hydrogen Economy: Electricity Oversupplied
A demonstration of using pure oxygen for oxidation
-- pre-empting CO2 capture -- & upgrading the thermodynamic potential of hydrocarbons.
The Thermal Hydrogen economy is engineered to keep the carbon and energy of hydrocarbons “self-contained”:
1) Carbon is never diluted with nitrogen, pre-empting the need for “carbon capture”,
2) The waste heat of every process is utilized for an endo-thermic reaction.
End result: Emissions free *liquid* fuels without excessive pneumatic work (Carbon capture/H2 distribution) or waste heat.
