Environmental Advantages

Traditional coal fired plants, even with scrubber investments, remain environmentally threatening and governmentally threatened as further legislation and requirements are certain but unknown in timing or scope. Other significant pollutants and environmental hazards of traditional coal fired plants include NOX, Mercury, particulate, and CO2. All of these pollutants can be addressed far more efficiently and at a vast capital and operational savings using the Powerdyne system.

The Powerdyne system has no NOx or SOx and 99.9% of the mercury is trapped for commercialization. We are left only with CO2 and H2O. The H2O is recycled and 99.9999% of CO2 is captured for sequestration or commercialization.

Governmental advantages

When faced with ever increasing regulation and the high cost of compliance, many utilities are electing to close plants as no longer financially viable. Others are being closed by governmental edict as environmentally dangerous and in violation of the Clean Air Act.

Between 2000 and 2006, over 150 coal plants were authorized for construction in the US. In 2007 at least 60 of these plants were cancelled, abandoned, or put on hold. In 2008 an additional 19 plants were cancelled, abandoned, or put on hold.

Powerdyne technology is the financial and environmental answer for utility companies. It will stabilize and revitalize their investments in existing coal plants. It will set the environmental bar far in excess of current EPA standards. It will allow utilities to provide clean, abundant, affordable energy world wide well into the next century.

Today, Powerdyne provides the responsible bridge to those energy technologies of the future that will not require fossil fuels. Until then, utility companies can retrofit and operate existing plants efficiently with a significant economic windfall. They can build new plants successfully. Consumers throughout the world can enjoy clean, affordable, and abundant energy.

The market opportunity for Powerdyne is significant. The motivation for power providers to adopt this technology is optimal. The following chart is calculated from sourcewatch.org data.
