There has been one in Sydney I believe for years

There is a nuclear reactor in Sydney at Lucas Heights, the only one in Australia, but it is used for medical purposes and is not the large power station type of thing. www.ansto.gov.au/ And Sydney wouldn't be any great loss if things went wrong. :)

If you want a good humorous read about the Australian nuclear facility The Year of the Angry Rabbit. Written by Russel Braddon who was on HMAS Perth sunk in the Battle of Sunda Straight. He wrote the three best books on the battle, his time on the Burma Railway and as a slave in Japan. He was the first into Hiroshima (near his prison camp) the day after Japan surrendered and they opened the gates. He wandered around only a week after the bomb dropped and lived to a grand old age.

Will check it out Lang

There was a movie made, at a guess in the late 60's early 70s called "China Syndrome" and a nuclear power station going wrong

Apparently 2 weeks after its release there was a similar thing happen at 3 mile Island nuclear power station in the U.S. and that was the last nuclear station built in the US

Brocky may know a lotmore about this

I think nuclear is safe if done right, the problem is the human factor as it was in the movie and in real life at 3 Mile Island

It can be done right and France shows this year after year

The British government is building a new power station and even before it's anywhere near finished the economics of renewables have turned around and it will be running at a massive loss.
WA is not on the same page as the eastern states and if it it allows the Scarborough gas field to open it will actually be increasing it's carbon footprint.
It seems that the current "shortage" of coal fired electricity is due to the generators gaming the system to force a higher price and an attempt to get govment to invest in coal.

For what it is worth. Just got this from an old army mate who is very entrepreneurial. I know nothing about it but may interest current operators.

DYNACERT



With the 2022 calendar year approaching mid-year, I would like to update you on the Australian roll-out of the hydraGEN technology for heavy diesel engine users.



Following the change in the Federal Government and increased commitment to Net Zero by 2050, the pressure on firms to formulate carbon reduction plans of action is growing stronger by the day.



In order to meet this target, heavy diesel-using companies will require around 60% emission reduction over the next twenty-eight years.



Within the Australian Government Plan all transport will shift to hydrogen or electrification by 2050, however it acknowledged that much of the technology to replace heavy diesel use is under development and it will take many years before it and the supporting infrastructure is widely available and affordable to Australian businesses.



The revolutionary hydraGEN® hydrogen injection system can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from heavy duty diesel engines immediately and provide a quick financial payback through lower diesel consumption.



· Up to 88% reduction in NOx produced

· Up to 46% reduction in CO produced

· Up to 57% reduction in THC produced

· Up to 55% reduction in PM

· 6 to 19% reduction in fuel consumption

· Reduction in diesel exhaust fluid by ~40%

· Reduction in DP Filter replacement by ~30%




Globally, the dynaCERT technology is already reducing diesel fuel consumption and carbon emissions across a range of industries and countries.

Locally, H2Zero is working with a global heavy industry company that operates around 1000 diesel engines. Extensive trial work on interstate freight work has proven a reduction in diesel related fuel cost of 12.1% and an annual reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for each truck of 16.4 tonne per 100,000km.

The units are also being installed to reduce diesel cost and emissions within Western Australia's mining equipment.

H2zero proudly distributes and supports the range of hydraGEN® products in Australia/NZ suitable for all classes of on-road, off-road and also stationary diesel engines.


Contact me at H2zero today or our representative will be back in touch within 7-days to follow up on your questions regarding emission reduction and how hydrogen can safely assist you on your Road 2 Zero.

converting a 600hp 4 stroke diesel truck motor to hydraGen ....... how many hp do U lose?
how much extra fuel do U need to get the job done?

I threw some questions to him on real world figures, this is his answer.

Lang,



You are quite right about truckies, which is why we shoot for the fleet managers (who are probably truckies anyhow!). The major corporates do have to take an interest in ESG, whether they like it or not. They are still hard work.



We developed our own cloud-based fuel monitoring systems and exhaust emission systems to eliminate the bullshit you get when arguing about how much fuel you saved.



Our initial test is on a Western Star 4800 prime mover that does Rocklea, Mackay, Gladstone return for scrap metal. The article below shows 10-11% fuel saving and an additional 1-1.5% from AdBlue. The AdBlue reduction is approximately 40%, which is quite substantial.



For a truck doing 200 000 km pa and above, you will get an approximate ROI of 12 months or better. Annual operating costs would be approximately $100 pa for potassium hydroxide, then 3-4L of demineralised water, costing around $25 per month.



There are no moving parts and life expectancy is 10 years +.



Hope this answers some questions.

Here are some articles

What really amuses me is most of these cars for the foreseeable future aren’t zero emission because they get plugged in at home or a charging station and that power comes from the grid most of which is generated from stinking dirty coal and we all saw what happened when the power boys stopped/cut back supply to get more money renewables didn’t quite cut the mustard

Cheers Bluey

Electric vehicles don't reduce anybody's carbon footprint, they merely move it offsite.
