THE SUPERPLASMIC FIELD GENERATOR©
The heart of the Phoenix Remediation Park and retrieval process is the superplasmic field generator. Using unique metal-infused ceramics enables direct current (DC) plasma of high-current capabilities to be formed and sustained by the high-voltage alternating current (AC) half-wave for AC component that is used to carry a high-current DC carrier of the same potential of the half-wave for AC component. This forms a superplasmic arc similar to a lightening bolt that is safely contained for continual use.
The Superplasmic Field Generator© does not use conventional electrodes. A linear ion-array process is used to form a super-conductive cooling system with a combination of water and chemicals to carry the current, sustain the plasmic field, and redistribute the heat generated back into the retrieval process.
Virtually any substance may be retrieved using this technology. Outside of the retrieval process, energy and pure carbon atoms are the main exhausts. The pure micro-carbon is collected on a series of electrically charged grab-grids and recycled into various industrial uses. The excess energy can be utilized in society and no pollution is released into the environment.
The atomic disassociation of molecular structures at high temperatures has been demonstrated in different types of thermal reactors. Until recently, all experimental thermal plasma reactors have used conventional opposing-electrode configurations. Although these reactors have demonstrated their effectiveness, their reliability has only allowed limited operational times because high temperatures decompose the electrodes. The generator must be shut down every few hours for 30 minutes to change the electrodes (see Support Data 2 for details).
Other treatment processes, such as incineration, or dumping our wastes into landfills or oceans, has created such strong opposition from environmental interests that the public now is demanding more effective treatment. Increased pollution, caused by the exponential growth of the human population, has resulted in the dumping of millions of tons of pollution into the environment every day. We have created what scientists around the world now declare is the most serious situation ever faced by the human race.
We must, as a race, deal with our emissions and pollution problems now in order to be sustainable. Remediation Parks, as presented here, are designed to effectively address this situation in a timely manner. It is vital to future generations that we transform the causes of climate change NOW! Mother Nature will not wait.
One of the key ingredients to a successful, affordable, sustainable community is a Remediation Park with a Superplasmic Field Generator© that allows all precious resources to be retrieved. Each resource retrieved becomes part of the network of businesses that ensure the sustainability of the community. The Superplasmic Field Generator© is a relatively simple piece of equipment. It consists of a pair of chemically cooled tubular electrodes separated by a gap in which a discharge occurs creating a superplasmic field.
Electric power (200KV) is supplied to the electrodes forming a DC current that is overlapped with an AC current (50KV), forming the superplasmic field. The high frequency/high voltage and the low-current half-wave form components capable of breaking down the resistance of the cell and the elements contained therein. Plus, a DC high-current component of the same potential can be varied to accurately control the temperatures within the plasmic field without causing any plasma quenching. Any increase of resistance seen within the cell, due to chemical changes or flow-rate variations, is overcome by the high-voltage component.
This allows the plasmic field to reach any temperature and still remain functional within its physical constraints. The mass of seething electrically charged particles provide the necessary heat to disassemble the molecular bonds of the gases being processed. The Processing Chamber uses coolant injections for its electrodes via its high-pressure coolant system so that no material vaporization occurs, making the operation continual. In diagrammatic form, the Superplasmic Field Generator looks like this:

Final waste gases from the Retrieval Process (1) are brought into high temperature region near the plasmic field (3) causing their molecular structures to separate and generating heat that is absorbed by the coolant (6 and 7) and distributed back into the retrieval process. The remaining carbon ash is collected on an electronic Grab Grid (2) on the other side of the plasmic field. The alternating current (4) and the direct current (5) use the coolant as a conductor creating the superplasmic field in the interaction between them. (See Operational Synopsis for more operational details).
Since the system has low voltage requirements that can be met by a number of DC storage means, the Superplasmic Field Generator© is portable. It can be situated in virtually any site, on land or sea.
Chemical compositions may vary according to the wastes being fed into the generator plant. The synthesis of industrial toxic effluents and wastes - i.e., dioxins, P.C.B., cyanides, various acids, etc. - and their processes for degradation into usable or harmless elemental oxides, is a subject undergoing extensive research in various locations around the globe. Potential commercial users themselves must identify the specific chemistry of components involved in the treatment. While it may not be possible to predict what many of these combinations may be within the Superplasmic Field Generator© plant, or how they will respond to the Processing Chamber of the plant, it is predictable that every substance will effectively be retrieved or neutralized at discernable temperatures while remaining substances are transformed into energy and ash.
In order to successfully commercially neutralize the main list of industrial toxic emissions and pollutant wastes, a stable, ultra-high temperature range, regulated by computer control, delivers an effective and efficient retrieval operation for both wet and dry feedstock. As the feedstock approaches the superplasmic field (without the risk of cold spots or flame-out) the process can effectively clear all chemical bonds in fractions of a second. The gas can then be separated according to atomic weight or electrolysis or other methods according to the substances involved (see Network below for details).
Micro-analysis of particular wastes enables retrieval designers and/or operators to control temperature gradients, oxygen content, chemical combinations, time frames required to achieve clearance of elemental oxides, and enable them to build up a chemical "signature" or "profile" for each toxic element. The Processing Chamber is programmed for most effective and efficient treatment.
The Superplasmic Field Generator© Plant effectively minimizes or eliminates the common problems associated with incineration processes.
- The coated ceramic processing chamber, plus the absence of solid electronic probes or electrodes, makes corrosion from acid-combustion gases improbable.
- High gas Velocity (50 fps) in a combustion zone is not critical in a sustainable plasmic field Processing Chamber. Thus the "burn" factor is eliminated.
- High particulate suspension or ash content of feed or residue is not relevant because there are no probes or electrodes to corrode.
- Since the superplasmic field is separate from the waste elements, the "burn" is not just a flame sustaining "pilot" device, so it is not susceptible to any "flame-out" condition.
- Available, simple electric storage devices make possible the continual use of the Superplasmic Field Generator© Plant. It is not dependent upon external electrical power, so rolling electronic blackouts, power shutdowns and limited off-peak electricity supplies, are irrelevant. The plant is a continual 24/7 self-sustainable operation.
- The coolant can be used to create electricity, power the Retrieval Process, heat the refineries that process products retrieved, and power the production of products (see Network below for details).
- The Superplasmic Field Generator© Plant is mobile and can be used in multiple locations and at various strengths and sizes. In order to preserve our precious resources, a retrieval process must accompany the plant.
