Bernard A.J. Stroïazzo-Mougin, inventor of the accelerated energy conversion of the CO2 cycle The idea came to me early in the year 2006 when as a result of the Al Gore’s campaign calling the world’s attention on the excesses of anthropogenic CO2 emissions and their impact on global warming.
From here my thinking was: if CO2 is the result of burning or the oxidation of hydrocarbons and the hydrocarbons were formed at the base with organic matter, mostly plants. What was this vegetable matter or organic carbon formed from? The answer was simple: from solar energy, CO2 and H2O (no plant can live without CO2). So why not reverse this cycle by using redox CO2, a result of combustion, to effect a reduction and get its carbon back to convert it back into oil?
But the major difficulty was then the following: forming natural fossil oil took millions of years, hence the second part of the idea: Find a way to accelerate the forming process.
But we can not change or avoid the rigors of physical laws that govern our universe. But we can imagine the assemblage of elements that allow us to accelerate a transformation process. To materialize this idea, I was fortunate to work with a talented team of engineers, scientists and technicians to get one of the most spectacular changes in our energy system.
