The development of HyperCombustion(TM) and HyperFurnaces(TM)
for the clean burning of fossil fuels

Aim:

Achieve the "complete combustion" of fossil fuels (such as natural gas, diesel, coal, etc.), namely a combustion without appreciable combustible contaminants in the exhaust (such as Carbon Monoxide CO, HydroCarbons HC and others), with resulting increase of the energy output.

Conventional Combustion

The conventional combustion of fossil fuels is that triggered by an ordinary spark that is currently used world wide, with resulting well known, environmental problems, because said combustion is notoriously incomplete with ensuing emission in the exhaust of CO, HC and other toxic contaminants. However, these contaminants are themselves combustible. Therefore, the lack of their combustion, and ensuing environmental problems, are evidence of insufficient combustion temperature, as well as to the notoriously storing molecular bond of fossil fuels, and other technical aspects.

Magnecular Combustion

Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli [1] has already achieved complete combustion for the new gaseous fuel magnegas in the early 2000's when he was Chief Scientist of Magnegas Corporation (www.magnegas.com), as documented by the independent chemical analysis of magnegas exhaust showing non-detectable CO and no appreciable HC (http://www.santilli-foundation.org/docs/MG-AAL-combustion-analyses.pdf). This result is first due to the fact that magnegas is composed by the new chemical species of Santilli magnecules [2=5] consisting of clusters of atoms whose bond (called magnecular bond) is "weaker" than that of fuels with conventional molecular bond as a necessary condition to avoid complete combustible. Additionally, magnegas complete combustion is due to the fact that its flame temperature is about 10,500 degrees F, thus being more than double the flame temperature of any commercially available (see the certification by the City College of New York http://www.santilli-foundation.org/docs/Magnegas-flame-temperature.pdf), at which temperature CO and HC must burn. Therefore, the complete combustion of magnegas is due to its chemical structure with a bond weaker than that of molecular fuels, a flame temperature more than double that of conventional fuels, and, other engineering realizations.

HyperCombustion and HyperFurnaces

Subject to proper funding, in his current capacity as Chief Scientist of Thunder Energies Corporation, Dr. Santilli intends to extends to fossil fuels the complete combustion he has already achieved for the magnegas fuel. This aim can be industrially achieved now-days via specially designed HyperFurnaces permitting in their interior the new HyperCombustion based on high voltage, high power rapid discharges (HyperSparks) [2], resulting in flame temperatures much higher than that of magnegas, thus implying complete combustion plus the first known triggering of new nuclear effects without harmful radiations. Therefore, the combustion of fossil fuels in HyperFurnaces is expected to release no appreciable combustible contaminants in the exhaust as well as to yield a significant increase of energy output compared to the combustion of the combustion of the same fossil fuels in currently available furnaces.
