CO2 Oxidation and Beyond
Its a gas – A thermal chemical reaction to heat and pressure + Hydrocarbons – CH – Fuel
Bonding carbon to oxygen
Ethanol incomplete oxidation reaction =
Formaldehyde and acetaldehyde – Bonded H + C + O
1 Ton CO2 =
- 378 litres of diesel
- 83 imperial gallons
- 99 US Gallons
- 440 KG CNG
- 410 KG Ethanol
- 1 Ton Heavy Fuel Oil ( Marine) = 12.2 Tons CO2
What is PM – Black Carbon ?
Hydrocarbon chains- Uncombusted + Partially combusted = PM – VOC & PAH ( not fully Oxidised )
THERMAL DECOMPOSITION and REFORMING
hydrogen can become a metal, apparently similar to mercury, at some 100,000 atmospheres pressure!
It is a well established science that at certain temperatures and pressures gases become liquids, liquids become solids, solids become liquids, and liquids become gases.
Covalent bonds can be broken, modified to an altered state and created
Is this not how pollutants are formed?
Is it simply a reaction to temperature and pressure?
Pollutants are typically unoxidised or partially oxidised
CO2 is a chemical reaction to heat and pressure, Hydrogen and carbon when combusted …. Oxidised … can it be also decomposed due to heat and pressure?
THEREFORE: Normal Oxidation – IPCC 2006 ( Diesel)
Sfc x NCV x mass 44/12 x oxidation factor 99/100 ( assume 100% ) = CO2
ADVANCED COMBUSTION : Beyond Oxidation !
Sfc x NCV x mass 44/12 x oxidation factor 99/100 x decomp factor x/y = C+O
Where x will be % co2 reduced by decomposition y= CO2
- If Covalent bonds Are created by reaction to heat + Pressure – What Can they be reformed to with heat and pressure ?
- Therefore ; CO2+ 4 H2 → CH4 + 2 H2O + energy ( Sabatier Reaction )
CH4 = Methane
