I realize this utilization of the focus fusion device may be a ways off into the future (or is it?). But it may be possible in the future to use cheap, plentiful electric power from the DPF to synthesize methanol, gasoline, plastics, fertilizers, and etc. from seawater.
In fact, a company out there has done already figured-out the technology and chemistry involved in extracting CO2 and H2 from seawater to make synthetic hydrocarbons. This is much easier to do than to extract CO2 from the atmosphere because the concentration of carbon dioxide dissolved in the oceans is about 60 times greater than in the air.
But one of their ideas involves getting electricity from windpower to do this. I don’t see how the economics of this could ever work, considering the enormous cost of building the amount of windmills it would take to produce enough synthetic fuel for the entire transportation sector. Not to mention the losses even the most efficient cars would have converting the chemical energy of windpower back into locomotive power.
And then there are those who have also considered the idea of placing windplants on old offshore oil platforms no longer being used. The reason being is that the wind blows much stronger offshore. But once again, I consider this poor use (a waste) of old offshore oil platforms…... due to the low energy density of wind power.
In the future, why can’t the DPF be placed on old offshore oil platforms no longer in use? After all, it should only occupy the space of a 2-car garage and produce cheap, unlimited, inexpensive energy of higher energy density than any windplant. This would make better and more efficient use of offshore oil platforms.
After many years of research and development, electric storage batteries for electric cars still do not have the energy density and convenience of liquid fuel that allows quick refilling of a gas tank. So that while there will be some losses converting electricity into chemical fuels derived from seawater, the commercial value of the resulting liquid chemical fuel will be much greater…... for powering the transportation sector.
Here recently, there have been advances in improved fuel cells that use methanol. The methanol could be economically produced from CO2 and H2 derived from seawater by the utilization of fusion focus devices installed on offshore platforms. Furthermore, if you replace the internal combustion engine and wasteful transmission of a conventional automobile…...and run electric power directly from a methanol fuel cell to an electric motor attached to the wheels…...the original energy of the focus fusion device could be converted back into motive power quite efficiently. I believe such an infrastructure for the transportation sector may be possible in the future.
