Vertical Swash Zone Strategy for Collecting CO2 in Coal Fired Plant Smoke Stacks

The other day, someone came to our think tank and was discussing the need for clean coal technologies. In fact, I can’t agree more because we have tons of coal available; in the United States we have enough coal to operate all of our generation electricity plants for over 250 years. Right now we are selling some of our energy generating type of coal to China, rather than using it all here. This is because we are using more natural gas now due to the fracking technologies and the fact that it is cheaper to use. In any case, this got me thinking of different ways to collect the CO2 out of the actual smokestacks of these coal fired energy generation plants.
No doubt, you’ve heard of the giant scrubbers they put in to take out the soot and pollution. What if we could take the CO2 directly out of the smokestack, and then use that CO2 in the manufacturing process of creating carbon nanotube sheets and graphene coatings? If we did that, we’d have an abundance of light weight new Artificial Intelligence Robot material to use in our vehicles, trucks, aircraft, homes, buildings, bridges, and everything else in our society and civilization. Light-weight materials that are super strong mean better fuel mileage, and less deterioration over time of our most important infrastructure. Okay so let’s talk about a concept I came up with;
Now then, there is interesting phenomenon that happens at the beach in the swash zone. This is that area where you can walk on the beach but the water only comes up to your ankle. The water shoots up the beach, and then recedes and falls back only to get hit with the next wave pushing the next rush of water forward. It turns out during this process that quite a bit of sediment from the ocean is transported up onto the beach. Yes, that’s where much of the sand has come from. What if we could use the same process and strategy within a smokestack of a coal fired plant? How so you ask?
Well, what if we looped around some of what came out of the smokestack and forced it the other direction, it might be similar to the Indians making smoke signals, then this would also force the particulate against the walls of the smokestack. Now then, what if there were dual liners which rotated? And what if in the second set of liners, which would pop out during the blowback phase of this scenario, had holes in them, sucking in the particulate into a chamber for collection?
Now then, what if we didn’t have one typical type smokestack, but an interesting S-curve type system which used suction to keep the flow going? In other words, all this could be done mechanically, but we could still get out all of the CO2, or a huge percentage of it for some other use, rather than putting it into the air as pollution. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
