Solar Assist Carbon Dioxide Sequestration System

The system uses an inverted siphon and Solar Concentrator to extract carbon dioxide from the air and freeze it as dry ice encapsulated in plastic derived from algae. A fuel less method to then reduce the cost of carbon dioxide (CO2),  removal... also then paying for itself as the system grows hydrocarbon feed stock ..... A high  volume tool for large production volume of dry ice from atmospheric carbon dioxide.

This system uses gravity to produce the motive  "power" to then sequester Carbon Dioxide using a fuel less platform to then have the sequestration cost zero dollars once the system is constructed. The sale of excess product then also pays for the installation!

The design might be use full, if in multitude, placed around the upper rim of the Grand Canyon (or other canyon), to then use the basin to act as a dry ice retainer for quick removal of atmospheric carbon dioxide  sequestering it as a frozen CO2 (dry ice). The system then with super cooler discharge air duct  freeze the lower elevation base of the canyon, and plastic cap the top ( once full ) with constant cooling attained by the design system. In time.... then to slowly remove the concentration for smaller unit dry ice sequestration and plastic encasement for long storage periods. The canyon fill dispursant  ( spray deposition) then of liquid CO2 and Liquid Nitrogen to then cause the nitrogen to evaporate freezing the CO2 as Dry Ice.

Additional super cooler units then required upon the "fill" as the CO2 deepens ( floor coolers rise on scaffolding as the CO2 level increases for extraction).  Water ice capping may also be used if applied atop the plastic deposition that seals the dry ice.

The river at the base of the Grand Canyon then not needing to be diverted...

In lieu of river divergence, a plastic arch system to then bridge across the water to also accommodate increased water flow within the river.... A river "tunnel" constructed from recycle or algae plastic with the dry ice deposited atop the plastic sub structure. The layers of dry ice may require intermittent horizontal structural support plastic grid or inter locking i-beams placed horizontally across the canyon secured to the canyon walls. The canyon fill then plastic capped and externally refrigerated atop the plastic until extraction and subsequent confinement in algae derived plastic pressure retaining pressure tanks using carbon thread.

The design system using hydraulic fluid pressure and vacuum then to motivate a generator assembly to provide gravity driven energy converted to "work" to then sequester carbon dioxide upon a free energy system. Number 27 is filled with oil with valves numbers 63 and 64 in the closed position.

"Start sequence"; The "pre-set" vacuum level in the vacuum chamber, number 27, is attained prior to starting the system at twice the vacuum level required vs. the volume of return oil above the equilibrium oil level "line" in the vacuum oil chamber. This is determined by the diameter of the return flow pipes. This causes the oil flow cycle to "tilt" forward and perpetual rotation assisted by the falling head weight of oil then increasing the vacuum level within the chamber.

The "falling head weight" of hydraulic fluid ( H.T.F. ) then of sufficient  "weight" to counter act the mechanical resistance produced when using a ratio gear set and high voltage generator as rotational resistance is produced by traversing magnetic fields produced when generating electricity. The speed incline of the fluid discharge from the inverted siphon then returns to high vacuum within the top of the inverted siphon chamber, number 27.

A percentile of produced electricity from the main high voltage generator then reintroduced into the main drive line's electric motor, number 43. This allows for compound incline rate of rotation for the design to operate at sufficient velocity to perform it's function as intended because the magnetic  "pressure" ( electrical current), applied atop the fluid velocity rate.  The system is a "run away effect" balanced by it's loading.

The solar concentrator parabolic dish then able to heat the H.T.F. to increase the system energy level by increasing the pressure level in the chamber number 106, by heating the fluid. The solar concentrator then also able to assist in the water heating function via thermal exchanger, number 110, located in number 106's encasement ( in addition to the algae bio reactor's electric  in-line  "on demand" electric water heater ), keeping the algae  growth temperature optimal for algae production.
