Id like to know how you propose it be done. Just one of the number of ways would be sufficient to impress me.




The impurities can be siphoned off and used as feedstock for other processes.




Further, as noted, we already have coke coal (essentially pure carbon) production, and that industry shows no sign of being underserviced. So why are struggling coal mining companies going to invest in inventing entirely new processes to produce something already being produced in the most efficient way possible in quantities sufficient for demand?



That giant array of solar panels (520 acres) heats the sodium to approximately 550°C. You'll need twice that much heat to produce coke. And because heat and light follow an inverse-square rule, it'll be a lot more space than just twice the acreage. The temps are also by nature focused on a small area.

As opposed to modern coke producing plants which produce tons of coal daily, how much coke do you think such a tower would produce? Is there a reason coke plants haven't switched to this (not demonstrated to be feasible) production model?

You actually believe this is a worthwhile investment for a mining company? Interesting...

Sorry to tell you this but we got plenty of coal ,natural gas, and oil. If dems were so big on renewable energy why not just turn Yellowstone into one massive geothermal plant? We have increased our tariffs because we had been dealing with other countries tariffs for along time and we were tired of getting the short end of stick because of clowns like the bushes ,the Clinton clown college, and Barry and Mike obama.

Yup it's ALL the democrats fault!
Damn them!

Lets just ignore all the other myriad of problems that citizens and massive company's and corporations caused with their capitalist greed, along side the crony capitalist politicians on both ends of the spectrum. America doesn't have a political problem, America has an American problem, and basically ALL of them caused it, your economy is based of consumerism. That's not healthy.

I noticed you failed to mention the insane bile also spewed out by trump supporters,

Reading/comprehension skills not working well?

What do you think he meant by 'those who hate those who hate Trump'?

Unless you really actually do mean ALL Trump supporters, in which case you are just a typical delusional triggered never-Trumper.

Your economy did crash.

You really do need a history lesson or twelve if you think that the 'crash' of 2008 was anything even remotely like the hyper-inflation experienced by Germany during Hitlers rise to power.

We're talking apples and Nuclear reactors difference here.

Today is your day to get a clue. The US has all sorts of crazy tariffs.
chicken tax

Regarding Yellowstone geothermal, here is another clue: what good is cheap power if you have no grid access or nearby city.

Clinton clown college? Excuse me. There hasn't been as competent of an administration as Clinton's second term in decades. Obama's people are nearly as good. TRUMP? Look at the fools he had hired. Take Pruitt for example. Fifteen investigations and counting.

Ivana once said that Trump kept a copy of "Mein Kampf" on the bedside table ...

So, do you still believe in the tooth fairy?
