Voltage Enterprises is an Abu Dhabi-based startup founded just a year ago. It describes itself as an innovator in the energy field. And so far. But the highlight comes now: Voltage claims to have invented a zero-carbon fuel that is cheaper than natural gas. He calls it Kinetic 7.
I'm going to have a look to their site and I read:
“This clean, carbon neutral gas with net zero emissions will give global economies access to an endless supply of clean energy at low cost. It will enable countries around the world to maintain the size of their gas and energy supplies, while also achieving their net zero carbon emissions targets. This discovery could play an important role in reversing the global energy crisis, significantly reducing energy costs for consumers and businesses, at a time when the cost of living is rising and inflation has peaked in 40 years ”.
BUM. Where I have to sign?
Come on, let's be serious. It is as if someone wrote "I can do whatever you want". The genius of the lamp. Kinetic 7 is pretty much godsend for the energy industry, and brings a global change never seen before.
How would this miracle happen? From the water, the company says. FIG. How hydrogen? An energy vector obtained by separating the water molecules with a kind of electrolytic cell, or something like that?
No, I read. Kinetic 7 does not derive from the division of water molecules. It is obtained, the company says, by passing an electric current through water and producing "molecular clustering, oxidation and friction". The final result of the process? A reactive and safe inert gas for domestic and commercial use.
Kinetic 7 is neither in heaven nor on earth
Voltage Enterprises, I always read, is producing a plug-in device for homes, a larger version for companies, even a scaled-down version for the camp stove. This device "converts the water to Kinetic 7": so, as in the New Testament, only there was wine.
Second Rick Parish, executive chairman of Aquarius Global, the investment incubator behind Voltage Enterprises, Kinetic 7 is 80% cheaper than other energy sources (it doesn't say which ones, though).
On the other hand, hey, the source of Kinetic 7 is water. You don't even need to treat it, just a little electricity and a "converter" and you get gas for cooking, hot water and heating.
Voltage announced real-world testing, and device launch by 2023: seek business partners.
How many have we seen like this?
How nice it would be if Kinetic 7 were a reality. For centuries, however, all sorts of hoaxes have arisen in the energy field (and set just as quickly).
We want to talk about the cold fusion from the late 80s?
Also Martin fleischmann e Stanley Pons developed a whole series of "Devices" low-cost energy sources as prototypes. How did it end then? No one has been able to replicate the results of the two American researchers. Except, perhaps, one. An Italian, Andrea Rossi, builder of a device called E-Cat which would be the first cold fusion power generator. If it works, I say.
Rossi has done many demonstrations of his E-Cat, and an American company has also bought the marketing rights. But where is it today? They have been talking about it for 12 years and boh.
