Breakthrough energy discovery?


Calling it “the ultimate recycling” project, a Georgia agricultural researcher says he has found the solution to the world’s energy crisis.

Using a process of genetic modification and cloning of bacterial organisms that is capable of large-scale conversion of bio-mass into hydrocarbons, researcher J. C. Bell has enlisted the help of Sen. Saxby Chambliss, Sen. Johnny Isakson, Rep. Jim Marshall, Rep. Jack Kingston, and Floyd Gabler, the deputy undersecretary of the USDA, to bring attention to his project.

Bell has patented the process and has formed a corporation named Bell Bio-Energy, Inc.

Quoting an old Chinese proverb, “He who burns his food goes hungry,” Bell said he never considered using ethanol for his research. Instead he concentrated on bio-mass and hydrocarbons. Bio-mass is any living or recently dead biological material. Hydrocarbon is an organic compound consisting entirely of hydrogen and carbon. Decomposed organic matter provides an abundance of carbon and hydrogen and is naturally occurring in crude oil.

Sources for bio-mass are the forestry industry, pulp plants, agriculture and waste derived from the construction and demolition industry. “We are only using waste products.” In fact, a USDA study projected it was possible to produce two billions tons of bio-mass that could be converted to hydrocarbon. How much oil does that mean? “…you’re looking at 5 billion barrels of oil per year. That would be about two-thirds of what we use now.”

Bell says his groundbreaking discovery will require no modification to automobiles, oil pipelines or refineries as they exist today and could forever end the United States’ dependence on foreign oil.

Is this the “magic bullet” to solve the world’s thirst for energy?

Maybe.

  1. Interesting development, but as we have seen so many times, the proof has yet to come.
    There is an old technology that is suddenly new again, GTL, or gas to liquid. Apparently it is one reason so many new gas drilling leases are getting inked. I had four new lease agreements in ’07 for my mineral rights.
    Anyway, what I am getting to is this story.

  2. Yeah. The last line in that story reads like a prologue to this one. DOD is extremely interested in JC Bell’s project.

  4. We need to keep on working, and developing new technologies, as we never know where they will lead.
    In the meantime, we need to suck all the oil out of the ground in the ME, and then say adios and let them wallow in their own crapulence, from all the wealth they have devoured, and not reinvested in education or manufacturing.

  13. This could certainly be another arrow in the quiver. Along with nuclear energy (pebble bed reactors are at least as safe as hydropower, the waste disposal issue is a no-brainer, and MIT has placed plans for a modular PBR in the public domain), thermal polymer reaction plants (that do much the same thing as the process mentioned above, using virtually any hydrocarbon containing material from packing plant waste to sewage) and even satellite power stations: there are more than a few options that are technically feasible right now, with off-the-shelf technology.

    The only problems are overcoming the political barriers and the intertia of the installed base of energy production.

    Of the two, the political barriers are both the easiest to see and perhaps the most difficult to overcome, in part because of the intertia of the installed base of energy producers–greed–and in psrt because of the luddites–stupidity–who want us to descend into the darkness of energy deprivation.

    But then, greed and stupidity (well, along with envy) are usually at the root of most of our problems.

  14. Do you have a link to the original source? I would find that interesting.

    Thanks

  15. David: “the luddites–stupidity–who want us to descend into the darkness of energy deprivation.”

    Ain’t that the truth. The thought of SUV’s with an endless and renewable supply of affordable fuel is enough to make an emo cut his wrists. O Happy Day!

  21. Processes like this are our only hope of salvation but you can bet your last shekel that before the process is allowed to be put touse on a large scale basis, the developer will have to go through years of costly litigation launched by the environmentalist and backed by the oil barons.
