How to Build a Carbon Electron Cycle for Electric Turbines
Electron emissions from combustion of carbon and oxygen have been steadily declining since the 1980s, but the latest research suggests that there is still room for improvement.
A team led by Mark Hahn of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, is using a combination of electron microscopy and computer simulations to determine how electron emissions from carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and sulfuric acid interact with the electron beam in a carbon-cooled electronic throttle control.
The study builds on work by Hahn and his colleagues, which identified a carbon cycle that could drive electric vehicle efficiency by reducing the amount of energy used to drive a vehicle’s electric motor.
The researchers published their findings in a recent issue of the journal Energy & Environmental Science.
“I don’t think we’ve seen the last of this carbon cycle,” Hahn said.
“The question is: How can we get rid of it?”
The carbon cycle The electron emission from combustion in a vehicle is not the only source of energy that fuels electric vehicles.
The energy used by combustion is also converted into heat by an internal combustion engine, which converts heat into electricity.
Hahn’s team found that a carbon electron cycle could be used to convert these heat energy into electricity, which could reduce the amount and amount of fossil fuel fuel needed to power a car.
The team’s simulations show that a system based on the carbon cycle could convert nearly half of the energy used in combustion into electricity at relatively low temperatures.
The simulations suggest that the system could generate about 10 percent less electricity than a typical system, while reducing the carbon dioxide emissions that accompany combustion.
Hänn said the carbon-electricity system could also be used for fuel cells.
Fuel cells, a form of alternative energy that are designed to convert solar energy to electricity, generate energy at a relatively low temperature, which makes them ideal for electric vehicles and other energy-efficient vehicles.
Hain said the new study shows that carbon emissions from a vehicle can be effectively reduced by building an electronic throttle system that can be turned on and off with a single click of a button.
The new study found that the carbon emissions generated by a carbon ion exchange system can be reduced by an amount that is less than 10 percent of the emissions generated in conventional combustion engines.
The emissions generated from combustion can also be reduced to less than a third of the amount produced by combustion by using the carbon ion exchanger, according to the study.
