By using solar and wind energy itself, these giant man-made islands can turn CO 2 into renewable fuel, thereby solving two major problems that people are facing: ' Climate change 'and' exhausting fossil fuels'!
With the aim of slowing down the climate change process, while addressing the thirst for energy for humanity, the group of scientists from Europe have proposed a breakthrough solution at the macro level: Construction Huge artificial islands can turn CO 2 into renewable energy!
The idea of hearing this 'ahead of time' is in fact completely feasible, with the technologies that we currently own, what is lacking is just an investor and a blueprint. Comprehensive planning!
Solar Methanol Island - will have a surface covered with devices that generate solar and wind power.
'Humans need to radically minimize or even stop the emission of CO 2 from burning fossil fuels, to slow down the process of climate change' - The team's representative said - ' Fuel sources derived from liquid carbon will be an excellent solution for this situation. '
According to the team's description, the artificial island - named them 'Solar Methanol Island' - will have a surface covered with devices that generate solar and wind power, helping It can operate its own methanol fuel production system from CO2 and hydrogen from seawater.
The amount of methanol fuel produced will be stored in tanks located where boats can easily be taken and transported to the mainland for use. It is known that the entire process of solar methanol islands will be optimized to not release CO 2 into the environment!
According to calculations, every 70 floating modules (each module is the size of a fish raft) will create a Solar Methanol island about 1 km square. At the same time, this artificial island needs to be located in locations that are not far from the shore, in waters with an average wave height of less than 7 meters and less likely to be attacked by storms!
According to the representative of the research team, the biggest challenges to turning this idea into an applicable design, are currently encountered are: 'How the island's sub-parts need to be can be easily installed on a large scale in the middle of the ocean '; 'How to clean and maintain equipment on this island effectively and economically?'.
The huge 'Solar Island' idea can turn seawater into . gas!
