Title (EN) GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION
(FR) SOLUTION AU RÉCHAUFFEMENT PLANÉTAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention is a solution to the urgent problem of global warming using sodium from the oceans to remove excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The energy for this is produced from marine solar energy farms situated on the oceans. The farms also harvest rainwater and solar energy and are integrated with auxiliary vessels to process the energy into renewable fuels and chemicals. Sodium bicarbonate, a by-product, is used to reduce ocean acidification. An extensive underlying flexible frame is deployed in the oceans and secures in position a conglomerate of floating catchment modules and other floating structures. The conglomerate is flexibly rafted together and supports light weight solar energy panels and wind turbines. Fresh rainwater is collected and contained in the catchment modules which also function as bioreactors to grow microalgae. Made out of thin film membranes, the low cost catchment modules may be rapidly deployed to cover several million square kilometers of ocean surface.
(FR) L'invention est une solution au problème urgent du réchauffement planétaire utilisant du sodium provenant des océans pour éliminer le dioxyde de carbone en excès dans l'atmosphère. L'énergie, pour ce faire, est produite à partir de centrales solaires marines situées dans les océans. Les centrales récoltent également de l'eau de pluie et de l'énergie solaire et sont intégrées à des bâtiments auxiliaires pour transformer l'énergie en carburants renouvelables et en produits chimiques renouvelables. Le bicarbonate de sodium, un sous-produit, est utilisé pour réduire l'acidification de l'océan. Un cadre flexible sous-jacent étendu est déployé dans les océans et maintien en position un conglomérat de modules de captage flottants et d'autres structures flottantes. Le conglomérat est assemblé à la manière d’un radeau de manière flexible et porte des panneaux d'énergie solaire de poids léger et des éoliennes. L'eau de pluie fraîche est collectée et contenue dans les modules de captage qui fonctionnent également en tant que bioréacteurs pour faire croître des microalgues. Fabriqués à partir de membranes à film mince, les modules de captage à faible coût peuvent être rapidement déployés pour couvrir plusieurs millions de kilomètres carrés de la surface des océans.
