CO2 captured in solution while making electricity

M.T. Keshe claims to have come up with an inexpensive method for generating electricity through the capture of CO2 and methane gases in the air while converting them into solution and solid, with a byproduct being O2.

"In this system, one cleans up the environment while creating energy." -- M.T. Keshe

On Dec. 18, 2009, M.T. Keshe joined me on the Free Energy Now program.

Late on the evening of Dec. 18, 2009, I interviewed Mehran Tavakoli (MT) Keshe, of the Keshe foundation, located in Belgium.  It was early in the morning for him.  He had contacted me the day prior to see if I was interested in breaking a story.

You may recall that I interviewed him last July about a technology that allegedly both counters the effects of gravity while also generating electricity. He described his system as potentially enabling super fast and cheap travel, as well as what could be the next generation of commercial space travel. Not long thereafter, he was invited to be a guest speaker at the Space, Propulsion & Energy Sciences International Forum (SPECIF) that will be held at John Hopkins University next February 23 (3:30 pm).  

Well now he's got yet another eyebrow-raising announcement. He says that he has come up with a way to convert CO2 and Methane into solution and solid, while generating electricity, all in a small, inexpensive device, at room temperature. And the precipitate is said to be non-toxic -- harmless to the environment.  Another byproduct is oxygen.

In this case, CO2 acts as a fuel in a water solution, using background infrared as a catalyst, available 24/7, to bring the CO2 into solution where it precipitates into the bottom of the container -- all while generating electricity.  It is a solid state system with no moving parts.  The only maintenance would be to periodically remove the precipitate.  He says the CO2 slurry is safe to dump on the ground where it turns into a gel, and could even be beneficial to plants.  He said his associates have done this.

In a paper released today, Keshe states (slightly edited):

"Production and extraction of CO2 is known technology in the present science. What is new with our technology is that not only is CO2 extracted in a simple container at room temperatures and pressure, but at the same time energy is released through absorption and conversion of the captured CO2 to formic acid.  We have developed simple techniques to capture the energy released from this transition process."

He said one prototype has been running three small diode lights (each at 2 V, 0.8 mA) for 9 days now; and another similar prototype has been running one such light for 28 days continuously.  But the set-up that most captures the imagination, especially this time of year, is his claim to be powering the lights on his Christmas tree with this technology, which would take around 25 watts.

He envisions that once developed, a unit the size of a briefcase, and costing just a few hundred dollars, could power a house -- from CO2 -- with no moving parts.  And the jostling around of the cell in the back of a car would make it work even better, he predicts.

Keshe said his Foundation developed this technology as a back-up power system for his gravitational positioning system mentioned above.

"One of the most surprising things about this is how simple it is," says Keshe.  It is so simple, he alleges, that even the most poor places on the planet could build one.  If open sourced, the energy problems and excess CO2 problems could rapidly be resolved.

"According to [some in the] scientific community, this is as important [a] discovery as when electricity was discovered."

This all sounds fantastic -- if it is real.  That's the big question.

There is no shortage of imagination and good intentions when talking to Keshe.  One has to wonder, after looking into the myriad of claims and checking Keshe's history, that there may be more dream than reality in his visions.  Just how real and practical this particular technology actually is remains to be seen.

He says that the process has been tested and confirmed by a university in Belgium, as well as by the Holland hobbyist magazine, Elektor, who he says will be publishing their results in an article titled "Just add water."  He said they replicated the technology and ran a cooling fan of 5 volts at 125 milliamps for a little over 75 minutes.

He said the university measured CO2 in the solution sample he gave them.  They performed infrared, Raman spectroscopy and XRD, "confirming the extraction material to be CO2 in solution.  They also tested its solid matter residual."

Today they posted a paper on their website, describing the tests and their results.  "In the paper, all spectroscopes and the materials will be shown; and in the coming days we will post on our YouTube channel the showing of the liquid and solid CO2 and methane in open cups as liquid and dray powder and all details and the lights."

Two patents have been filed, one of them today.

Keshe says the development is based on existing principles of science just applied in a new way.  In particular, he cites an article published by the U.S. Department of Energy titled Carbon Dioxide (Reduction).

"We are in negotiation with European government on their invitation to start the development of our systems in Europe in the coming month."

He welcomes any serious party to stop in and see the technology in operation for themselves.  We at PES and the New Energy Congress would be anxious to have someone we know and trust stop in for a visit.  We were hoping for that to have been done in time for the publication of this story, but heavy skepticism about the claim prevented the potential persons from making the trip.

Paper Unprofessional

On December 23, 2009 2:38 PM, someone wrote:

This paper from his site is very poorly written and quite unprofessional in nature, and does not conform to any international standards for proper scientific reporting. It is full of misspellings and improper English, and does not properly link the facts with the statements and data collected.

Furthermore, it is very convoluted and misleading and does not readily prove his case, and lacks support of the conclusions he is trying to draw, particularly his use of the terms ‘nano’ and ‘superconducting’ materials, and expressions like ‘solid forms of methane’, etc.

I think his publishing this document, in this form, further degrades his already questionable image, and is likely to do far more harm than good in convincing people that he has made a meaningful discovery, (which he may possibly have the beginnings of something of value).

I suggest that you ask Keshe to have one of his English speaking professors edit and convert his various data and trivia into a meaningful and clearly written paper, which he can be proud of and is likely to be read by the target audience.

This might take a few days, but it could make the difference between his being looked upon as a scientist with a potential breakthrough vs. a ‘quack’ who doesn’t know how to perform good science.

For an example of a good technical paper I would refer him to papers like this one on new composition of matter, using special heating and light control methods:
