Magnesium Energy Cycle

    There is no doubt that we need an energy cycle free of fossil fuels that otherwise emit greenhouse gases causing global warming. Although solar energy is the ultimate renewable energy source, it is far from fully realized. Furthermore, since sunlight is available only in the clear daytime, it cannot be an alternative to thermal power stations unless effective and large power storage systems are available.

In 2004, we proposed to use the chemical potential of magnesium as such an energy reservoir. Heat and hydrogen from the reaction of magnesium with water are used for turbines, reciprocal engines, fuel cells, and so on. The remaining “ash,” has to be deoxidized in order to make the energy cycle renewable. The deoxidization process is driven by the energy from a solar-energy-pumped laser, a laser diode powered by a wind power, hydraulic power or other sources. Once such MgO deoxidization technology is developed, unsteady solar power can be stored in Mg form to provide a stable supply of energy.

Save the Earth

 

    Nowadays typhoon is growing it's size and there frequently occurred anomalous atmospheric phenomena. No one can deny that it is a consequence of change of terrestrial environment owing to CO2 emission.   The difference of vaporization between tropical area and northern area leads to the difference of salinity which drives global ocean circulation.  There is a movie in which the global warming reduces such salinity difference and finally stops the global circulation and entire American continents are frozen.  This is not science fiction but has solid scientific basis.  Some body, who insists there is no global warming but is cooling, may not understand the real picture of Earth which stands with delicate balance.

    We are obliged to pass over this Earth to our descendants as it is. We created the system to waste fossil fuels ,that were formed during millions or billions of years, in only 200 years. We must show how to recover the Earth as soon as possible.

 

 

Magnesium is the Material that the Earth Favors

 

 

     There exist 1.8 quadrillion magnesium in the ocean.  All the life forms were born there and will not live without magnesium.  It is well known that the shortage of magnesium leads to various diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes and so on.  MgO  is the medicine for stomach and Mg(OH)2 has some effect on improving water quality.

      The Earth provided us such huge resources and huge resources should be environment-friendly. We show here that magnesium is the best candidate for renewable energy sources
