My speciality is the development of sustainable feeds, fuels and energy, and my aim is to spawn a slew of new industries throughout the West.
Through the affordable Chemistry and Catalysis of Fluorides, Chlorides, and similar anhydrous but Liquid technologies – the West can build up novel, lucrative enterprises like truly-sustainable energy from fluid-phase Thorium reactors. My personal goals include countering several very serious challenges to America, the West and western economies in general...
But the best Defense to such challenges – severe enough to eviscerate whatever atrophied economic muscles remain, should we fail to wake up fast – is for the West to develop Molten Salts:
- Here is my briefest intro to Molten Salt Science: "Saving the West with Ms. Science."
- Watch a quick 10-slide introduction to Molten Salt Science. In addition to enabling the West with affordable Heat & Power from Ms. Reactors, Ms. Sci shall facilitate a number of Industrial Processes that should become highly profitable more quickly than China can copy!
- In January 2011 China publicly expressed its intentions to Control Molten Salt Reactor technology Globally.
(Download for better graphics, and check out the Endlink for a quick "Ms. Chem" tutorial.)
- The Response of the Dept of Energy to the obvious global "Ms. Ambitions" of America's main competitor (China) is baffling to most observers outside of the DoE Bureaucracy...
(also peruse resources in the appendix!)
- Fate of the US is tied to Rare Earths and Thorium. Feel free to add your Two Bits to this thread on G+.
- Summary of the Thorium Energy Alliance strategy for the US to lead an Industrial Renaissance in the West.
With a true passion for developing sustainable technologies for Chemicals and especially Energy, I know that if we fail to develop these very do-able technologies – which China is doing while I type – that no western manufacturer will be able to compete with the Sino Competition in the near future.
Regarding my "industrial" background, after I earned my M.S. in Chem Engineering and "cut my teeth" at Honeywell for 6 years (coming up with new chemicals, RMs and processes for high-temp "Fluoride Energy" systems), 3M Company recruited and moved me & my family (of 6 back then) to Minnesota.
For 13 years I really enjoyed developing a number of Energetic & Fluorochemical products at 3M.
I also invented and implemented (in 3M manufacturing facilities) numerous new & improved chemical processes. Several of such processes won 3M-Corp Manufacturing Awards, and three were granted US+ patents for significantly reduced costs & environmental footprint.

• I am now able to make many calls from my Mobile e/o Mac com much more Clarity para Places like Brazil, México, Norway, etc.,
and at considerably less cost – como cêrca a Quarter (¼ !) of G-Voice's former costs !!
How has your Master's in Nuclear been going
While North-Sea / Brent Oil is worth Less (as opposed to Worthless) and while Norway e otr. Nations Nearby yet have some (petro)Income with which to do R&D,
Now is the Time to "Light a Fire" beneath the *Butts of #OpinionMakers † que Care for Real regarding Earth's Environment !
And although I do care a lot about #ClimateChange , I am even More Concerned über #OceanAcidification .
For the Later, please see bit.ly/relentless-rise for the Problem and its Solution.
Thanks for Spreading the Good Word on Molten-sal. Science and the #MSR !!

One such Opinion-Maker seems to be Scotland's +Peter W Thorne, who awhile ago moved to Norway to do Climate R&D in Bergen !!
I recently saw on Linkd-In that you're reporting you have new "Work Responsibilities" - - a Big Parabéns pra você aí !
So do have Lots o' Fun enjoying um Feliz Aniversário TODAY while you're celebrating some twenty-seven years of "experience" aqui nesta Terra Nossa !!

Hey, jus curious re. how cêrca estás em te formar (ou emplegar) en Engenharia Química nesses dias? ☺

Before you read "Elon Musk has a Secret Weapon...",
May I suggest searching for "Jeff" and reading the very insightful comments on Musk's "Energy-Biz Vision" that Jeff has shared.
And When Ms. Members — members of the Molten-sal. Community — will have made thermal-Calôr and e-Power on Demand for just 1.2¢ and 2.4¢ per kilowatt-Hour, and ultimately for even less, cool Elon's Long-term Biz Viz Shall Be Realized:
I wanted to commend you for your dedication to Nature and to keeping our Planet a Habitable Place!
By the Way, one of my "Life Goals" is making "Molten-sal." Science (the most sustainable way that's affordable for Massively making Energy & Chemicals) Popular and Commercially Profitable ( sans silly subsidies del Govêrno!).
Because Mankind must come to cherish "Ms. Sci.", especially if we want to be able to keep the Earth's Seafood gesund:
As evidenced the below Tennessee-nuke article, plus the footnoted art., any U.S. 'Nuclear Renascence' can only come with Signif Disruption.
the Triggers leading to the Latter may include:
. . . • China commercially rolls out its "proprietary" #MSR , with Sino Control of all "Ms. Supply Chains" assuring Chinese dominance Globally for the ultimate cheapest source of power...
. . . • Soon after the Sino Ms. Roll-out, the UN plus enough of the West, are no longer able to refute the Fact that Excessive CO2 causes "massive disruption" (=destruction for several human generations) of the Seafood Chain que Mankind's come to depend on. Thus China successfully forces the "RoW" to depend on Sino MSRs run by Sino staff.
But practically All of the Tech Expertise, Ms. Supply Chains and Profits stay long-term Controlled by China... (see bit.ly/relentess-rise)
OR, the disruption truly Helps the West (–hopefully–):
. . . • the 2015 Congress passes "CRÊR" – legislation for Cooperative Rare-Earth Refineries (=National RE Coop Act, or N.RĒCA):
