CHEYENNE, Wyo., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Nitro-Turbodyne, Inc., specialists in green energy solutions, announced today it has been granted an important patent for an engine design that utilizes the power storage potential of liquid nitrogen (LN2). Using this methodology, electro-mechanical energy can be created without combustion using a unique turbo expansion process, allowing near silent, highly reliable, low cost operation with zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from a 100% renewable supply of nitrogen.
Leveraging several unique properties of LN2, this patent uses the inverse potential energy stored within LN2 to provide power for generators, pumps, flywheels or other devices. This method thus looks at LN2 as storing a "negative" quantity of energy, and then, by converting back to a higher-energy (gaseous) state in relation to its environment, allows the creation of electrical-mechanical energy.
"The concept of inverse energy storage solves multiple issues in today's push for better – not just cleaner - energy solutions," said Ed De Reyes, CTO of Nitro-Turbodyne. "Too many applications today rely on rare earth element battery technologies, which are economically and environmentally costly. Leveraging the power storage capability of LN2 is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than batteries – and has more power storage potential than a battery of similar weight and size. We plan to bring this technology to many applications worldwide."
While this method uses LN2 to create clean energy, LN2 can also be created by clean sources including windmills, photovoltaic (solar) facilities, tidal facilities and other sustainable power production methods.
Nitro-Turbodyne has begun production of a 50-watt generator for use within sensitive environments where noise, carbon emissions or combustion are not desirable. Designed for use at remote oil fields above the Arctic Circle to power instrumentation and telemetry at finished well sites, these units are targeted to replace existing gasoline, diesel and thermoelectric generators that produce carbon emissions or burn high sulfur-content gas. The 50-watt generators will provide significant environmental advantages over carbon-emitting generators, and are also drastically less expensive to operate. Most importantly, these units can be operated close to gas wells without risk of inadvertent combustion. A 26 KW generator, also ruggedized for oilfield use, is scheduled for design completion later this year.
Nitro-Turbodyne, a clean-technology innovator, also produces the world's highest capacity industrial use cryogenic-to-gas flow controller, and recently installed two units for CO2 sequestration in carbon-strengthened concrete. Inquiries about this invention, the patent or any of Nitro-Turbodyne's other products are welcome.
