PLANTS do both scrubing CO2 and making Oxygen. How many plants would it take to do the same job as these alternatives? How about a comparison video? I'm sure many other fans like me would like to know.

I thought he was going to say the headphones button Is so cool because they pause the music and turn up the outside noise to hear people better, not just to pause music like my $40cdn Poms that are a knockoff of Airbuds that are a knockoff of airpods lol but good enough.

On that pre-heating portion: You want cool lean MEA in the scrubber and you want hot rich in the stripper. So you could either put a refrigerator or radiator behind the stripper and waste all the heat you put into the MEA or you can use a heat exchanger. With a heat exchanger you transfer the hear from the rich MEA you want to cool down into the lean MEA you want to heat up. This reduces the need to put additional energy into the system for heating and cooling.

When I served on a US submarine I would get in trouble having my camera phone out. So This is so weird seeing a video of a submarine.

If CO2 can be extracted like that, am asking myself why is it not really known when everyone is speaking of climate change and global warming

The preheater before the boiler is necessary to operate an efficient flash tower. If you had no preheater youd not be able to reach a steady state flash process.

Clinkers? Like the iron byproduct in burning coal? That makes a clinking sound when you stir coal in a forge/furnace. 😅 Also how do they do this in space? Is there any similarities to create oxygen on a space station.

too bad there's no way to effectively store the hydrogen produced during electrolysis on submarines. After spending all that energy to produce it, it would be nice to be able to store it for use as fuel or propellant

Awesome video as always! The preheating stage at 23:37 with the MEA solution must be to increase the overall efficiency of the final heating stage, in a sub every space must the carefully design to ensure minimum space is occupied, taking advantage of the higher contact area of the pipes and preheating the solution during pumping to the final stage is cleaver and rises the overall efficiency of the process.

If I had to guess [prior to watching.] it's some combination of "compressed air tank storage, Rebreather style recirculation, or, my favorite option, Electrolysis based O2 production from water.

Hah. so Electrolysis was the one he talked about. and...I hadn't strongly considered the chlorine gas but..i had sort of mentally touched on "probably would purify it first, cause...sea water has fish poo and stuff. sooo...partial credit.

Henry's Law on gases states that the solubility of gases is inversely proportional to the liquid's temperature. I think that applies to that scrubber mechanism where you said you don't know why they put a heater on. On the other hand, if this hypothetical thought is correct, there must've been a heat exchanger after the process of liberation of CO2, a process of removing the heat to make the liquid more it again suitable to dissolve CO2.

I guess in future nuclear subs they can use a larger version of the moxie experiment that's on mars rn to convert CO2 to O2
Crusher O'Lies
Crusher O'Lies 13 saatler önce
you are why i check comments, i went and read about the moxie thing, it is neat how it changes co2 into 2co and an o2. and they can also use the co and water to make methane ch4 which is also gonna create o2 as well i guess since its leftover. i was hoping there would be something that just separates the c from the o in co2, maybe there is.

Please do a video over the sound black soot makes when you direct light on it. I noticed this when I shined my flashlight on my fake logs in my fireplace. I can’t find a good explanation for this. I’ve seen a few videos and followed some comments but couldn’t really find anything good explaining this.

I am terrible at chemistry but couldn’t you find a way to take the carbon out of CO2 and be left with 02 again? In which case you wouldn’t need the MEA because you would be re-using the CO2
