United States Patent Application: 0130105304

We've presented you with a number of reports documenting the development, by scientists at New Jersey's Princeton University, of technologies whereby Carbon Dioxide, as reclaimed from whatever handy source, can be recycled and consumed in the synthesis of valuable and needed hydrocarbon compounds.

As seen, for one example, in:

West Virginia Coal Association | Princeton University November 20, 2012 CO2 to Ethanol | Research & Development; concerning: "US Patent 8,313,634 - Conversion of Carbon Dioxide to Organic Products; 2012; Inventors: Andrew Bocarsly and Emily Barton Cole, NJ; Assignee: Princeton University; Abstract: The invention relates to various embodiments of an environmentally beneficial method for reducing carbon dioxide. Claims: A method of converting carbon dioxide to provide at least one product selected from the group consisting of glyoxal, isopropanol, ethanol, 2-propanol, acetone, acetaldehyde and mixtures thereof";

United States Patent: 8435457

Carbon Dioxide, on a practical basis, can be reclaimed from our environment and then be converted, recycled, into liquid hydrocarbon fuels.

If you've followed our posts at all over the years, you will know that fact has been well-established by at least one impeccable source: The United States Navy.

We've introduced the topic of maximizing the value of Coal through the co-production, in a single, integrated facility, of both synthetic hydrocarbons and electrical power in a number of previous reports, such as:

West Virginia Coal Association | USDOE Promotes Coal for the Coproduction of Power and Fuels | Research & Development; concerning report of the USDOE-sponsored research project: "Clean Coal Technology: Coproduction of Power, Fuels and Chemicals; 2001; United States Department of Energy; National Energy Technology Laboratories; Executive Summary: Coproduction of power, fuels and chemicals offers an innovative, economically advantageous means of achieving the nation’s energy goals. Coproduction involves the integration of three major building blocks: Gasification of coal ... fuels to produce synthesis gas (syngas); Conversion of a portion of the syngas to high-value products such as liquid fuels and chemicals; Combustion of syngas to produce electric power. In coproduction, the relative amounts of syngas used for power generation or converted to fuels and chemicals depend on market demands. The goal of coproduction is to fully utilize the feedstock and maximize revenue streams. By permitting operation of the gasifier at full capacity to make syngas for either power generation or fuels and chemicals production, coproduction makes more efficient use of capital than when producing power alone"; and:

We've documented many times that Coal Ash can be added to Portland-type Cement, PC, as a reactive substitute for some of the sand and gravel aggregate traditionally used, with the result being Portland-type Cement Concrete, PCC, that is both stronger and more resistant to chemical attack and deterioration than conventional PCC.
