HOW TO IDENTIFY METAL AS A FUEL?

PROMISING IRON POWDER PROPERTIES

1. It may not have carbon in its structure - it must be a noble metal

2. Element must react with oxygen (combustion)

3. It must compete with other available fuels in terms of energy density

4. No toxic, radioactive or dangerous elements are released during combustion

5. Oxide reduction has to be available without CO2 emissions

6. The technology must be scalable

1. When combusted, iron powder releases no carbon dioxide emissions since there exists no carbon in iron

2. Because the reaction product particles are larger, they can be captured, which enables circular use of the energy carrier

3. Iron powder is very compact - lots of energy is stored in a small particle

4. Iron powder can be easily and cheaply stored for a long time, without leaks

5. Iron powder is one of the most common elements on earth

 

MILESTONE MAPPING

1. THE DISPERSION

SYSTEM

2. THE FIRST

FLAME

3. THE ROTATIONAL

PARTICLE SEPERATOR

In this timeline, we are mapping the technical milestones. The first one is all about the dispersion system, the module that is now finished and ready to be tested. This year’s system will mix iron powder with air, burn the iron powder, use the heat of the flame for steam production, and catch the rust.
