ALTERNATIVE ENERGY IN AUTOMOBILES
Hello Faithful Readers:
Some pretty exciting news here. I wish I could say this is from the heartland of America, but I can’t. Still and all, it is from our good friends in Europe and we can replicate it here when and if we need to. And we will. If some of you have seen where this is done here in America, write me and let me know. I will be glad to write about it.
This involves technology used to power automobiles and trucks. Frankly, I don’t see why with a little innovation we couldn’t use the same technology to power residential power generation or even commercial power generation. They plan to. But more on that later.
When the energy transition comes, and it won’t be that long, we will need all the innovation we can find. Many of you know that. Some may not, but that’s ok, because you will see it very soon.
Alternative energy solutions are solutions. The more the merrier, as we working people will be the ones left with nothing while Al and Rush and all their little friends will do just fine. They want you to think they are not friends and they want you to think they are not on the same side. You do so at your own hazard.
But let’s get to it:
Many of you have heard of Talbotts in the United Kingdom. Don’t mistake this for the clothing brand, Talbotts was originally the British brand name used to sell imported French Clement:Bayard cars. The company was founded in 1903.
The company is now a group of serious biomass energy experts and acknowledged as that in Europe. Anyway, they launched one of the most efficient wood-fueled biomass machines. It is called the BG25. They claim it to be a world’s first. This company is serious in innovative automotive technology. They have developed a machine which incorporates automotive technology in order to ensure a continuous operation and do this on a self-sustaining generating cycle.
Pretty neat stuff.
It seems the company developed this biomass generator and did it in conjunction with another bio-energy team located at Harper Adams University. Some of you own heating stoves which incorporate wood pellets. This system works by burning waste wood in the form of pellets. They use a combustor that generates hot air. They claim they have a mile and a half of piping that they pack into their heat exchanger. That same hot air then powers a turbocharger. This is the same turbocharger generally found on Scania trucks.
Their literature tells me that a lot of this heat energy is cycled back through the compressor and used to charge incoming air and thereby continues to drive the turbocharger. The excess energy is captured and used by a second turbocharger and that one drives two alternators in a specially designed gearbox. If that isn’t crafty, I don’t know what is.
