WILL THIS BLACK BOX CHANGE THE WORLD?
By J. Parker and Don Wolfe October 16, 2017
There is a paradigm shift in energy emerging from a small black box in a research lab near Tampa, Florida. The black box and the technology inside it, can change the world’s energy balance from fossil fuels to a new clean, green energy source, one as old as the Earth itself. This clean energy is not from the usual suspects of wind and solar. It is from a small black box that cleanly extracts energy from fresh or seawater.
Walt Jenkins, founder of a small research firm, H2 Global, LLC (H2G) has been testing water based fuel systems for several years. Research into lightning storms and how water molecules behave in charged fields led H2G to discover a new process of clean energy that can benefit the world. It is 97% cleaner and 97% less expensive than gasoline or diesel. It’s here now, and it works very well in all internal combustion engines with only a minor fitting added.
This new H2G technology has nothing to do with inefficient electrolysis devices, widely hyped on the internet. It does not extract hydrogen or oxygen from water, or use high, 20-80 amps, of power just to gain a few miles from a gallon of gas. The H2G water to fuel process has nothing in common with centuries old electrolysis. The new H2G process uses less than 180 milliamps of input power. It runs an engine 97% on water and will soon offer 100% clean water-fuel.
The H2G black box technology extracts energy from water. It works on a molecular level, similar to lightning exploding inside thunder clouds. It is so efficient, it can use a small 9 volt radio battery to convert water into a clean burning fuel. This breakthrough technology developed at H2G, offers the least expensive and cleanest source of energy on the planet. It converts water to fuel in real time, on demand, as needed. It can provide clean fuel for any engine that currently uses hydrocarbon based fuels. Now, grid power plants, generators, passenger jets, cars, trucks, all powered marine vessels, any internal combustion or jet engine, can run 97% cleaner and with 97% less cost. Soon a 100% clean water based fuel will begin sea trials on Tampa Bay with a catamaran powered by seawater.
With patents filed around the globe and more advanced technology in the lab, H2 Global, has been quietly working on a series of solutions to other big problems, a newer more efficient solar panel, replacing toxic batteries with new lightweight high density energy storage devices, a desalinization system which is much less expensive using very low energy input and is more productive than current technology. Company founder, Walt Jenkins stated “We are beginning sea trials on the newest H2G seawater-to-clean-fuel process. It takes energy from seawater, runs engines, and returns the water back to the sea as clean as it was before we processed it.” Ocean going ships can now run cleanly using the water they float on, without leaving a toxic footprint. Currently, a single super cargo tanker in transit from China to the USA creates as much toxic pollution as 250,000 cars. H2G provides a clean solution for all sea going vessels.
The H2G water fuel process is now the cleanest and lowest cost form of energy available in the world. Solar and wind would be, except for the fossil fueled energy it takes to make them. Pollution problems from hydrocarbon fuels plague countries around the world. H2G provides a low cost, clear solution, without the huge financial burden and toxic energy upsurge of going electric. Electric vehicles (EVs), use toxic batteries, and electricity from fossil fueled grids that do not have the capacity to supply them, if we all had one. The surge in energy demands would create a toxic footprint fossil fueled pollution nightmare even larger than we have now. Estimates to build out the world’s electric grid to accommodate electric vehicle future uses are 1$5 Trillion Dollars, in the U.S. alone. 2 Green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla points out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." See footnotes below and the following U.S. government and industry statistics.
The most popular electric car, a Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable diesel Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping.
The results are similar for the top-line Tesla car, emitting about 44 tons, about 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. The enormous battery waste disposal problem was not included in this calculation.
Subsidies vs. savings
In both cases, the electric car seems better, by only a tiny bit. Avoiding 3 tons of CO2 would cost less than $27 on Europe's emissions trading market. The annual benefit is about the cost of a cup of coffee. Yet, U.S. taxpayers spend up to $7,500 in tax breaks to subsidize electric cars for less than $27 of climate benefits. That's a really bad deal. Once again government expects taxpayers to pay $7,500 for a $27 value and a huge financial boon to auto makers at our expense, all in the name of saving the environment. Never mind that very few people on the planet can afford to give up their current car and switch to an expensive electric. Who’s fooling who?
According to statistics, if the U.S. has 10% more gasoline cars in 2020, 870 more people will die each year in the U.S. from air pollution. Hybrids, because they are cleaner, will kill just 610 people. But, 10% more electric vehicles powered by the average U.S. electricity mix will kill 1,617 more people every year, mostly from coal pollution. The electric car kills almost three times as many people as some gasoline cars now on the market. H2G can reduce the number of deaths by 97%, without all the disruption and financial burdens.
Of course, electric car proponents would venture that the perceived rapid ramp-up of renewables will make future electric cars much cleaner. This, however, is mostly wishful thinking. Today, the U.S. gets 14% of its electric power from renewables. In 25 years, Obama's Energy Information Administration estimates this will have gone up just 3 percentage points to 17%. Similarly, fossil fuels generate 65% of U.S. electricity today, and will generate 64% in 2040.
Instead of focusing on electric cars, we should focus on making coal-fired power and all fossil fuels cleaner, or replace them. H2G technologies offers clean water based fuels 97% cleaner & less expensive. Soon, it will offer 100% pollution free water based fuels. What is more practical, forcing everyone to buy a new electric and create a huge surge in pollution and toxic battery dump sites, or run on H2G clean fuels that work with what we have? We need to get rid of fossil fuel pollution not the trillions of invested dollars in the installed base of internal combustion engines that now power most of the world. It is not the engine that pollutes, it is fossil fuels. If the worlds internal combustion engines ran on H2G clean fuel, EV’s could not compete in either fuel cost or toxic footprints. The internal combustion engine can run 100% toxic emissions free on H2G clean fuels.
Electric cars, run on fossil fueled grid energy. A big surge in their use will create an even bigger demand that will greatly increase toxic greenhouse gases. EV’s alone are great, but battery and fossil fueled grids are a looming environmental nightmare. Solar and wind cannot be deployed fast enough or at a financially reasonable ROI to meet such an increase in energy demand. They are not yet an adequate or practical near term solution.
H2G’s clean fuel solution can run both internal combustion engines and make clean power for electrics, if power companies step up and transition away from fossil fuels. The H2 Global, company has received invitations from several countries around the world to provide H2G clean energy solutions for serious pollution problems. It provides a far more economic and much cleaner options than suddenly increasing electric demand for fossil fueled energy. These countries may be the among the first to license H2G clean fuels solutions and other H2G green technologies. Good news travels fast. Keeping up with demand needs to be faster.
