They crack the water into hydrogen on site and then to get round the difficulty of transporting it from a wind turbine site in the middle of nowhere they then combine it with carbon from the atmosphere to create a synthetic fuel that can be easily tankered about.boars wrote: ↑Jan 12 2020 10:30pmWould be cool if they could get a 2-stroke to run on hydrogen but it's just such an annoyingly hard gas to keep pinned down and you only need a tiny leak for combustion to be possible. I'm not sure I'd want to test my luck with a hydrogen powered 2 stroke motorbike
Still I live in hope that my old bikes can be resurrected in some form in the future, not many people are willing to put up with following an old 2-smoker these days.
I have no idea of the process and it's efficencys or what chemicals are used to make it happen so it could be dirty in itself or the octane rating of what they plan to make but the end deal is a engine that if run on that fuel alone and it can be provided in large enough quantity to provided say half the people that didn't by into electric and have garage with a charger, solar roof, power wall and a personal windfarm to connect the new tesla truck they wants so badly.
If that's not you then there still maybe a way to have your smug face on and still say well I'm greener than you by not purchasing all that crap and having a massive carbon print over my head by the amount of stuff I buy and holidays I take and the 2 family teslas I'll argue I have less impact my way even with a diesel car I beat them because I don't have the cash to spend they forget every purchase has a carbon debt and if they want to play the blame game it's the one that have bought into the clean dream are logically not the lowest in the carbon scale not that I'm counts how many grams I created out today mind.
Top fact we lose more weight through our breath by carbon dioxide output than we excrite so large people you nw what I'm saying hold your breath or I'll tax you
