Nuclear Powered 99% Effective Sewage Water Recovery System
The powder-dry sewage biomass is then pyrolyzed in the plasma gasifier and converted to carbon-neutral liquid fuels
The largest single use of electricity in California is currently moving water from North to South.  Nuclear desalination is California's key to the future.

          
Hyperion (now gen4energy) Nuclear Powered Water Recycling system for extremely dry remote low-tech regions. Think Phoenix, Arizona.
This is a lead-cooled fast reactor. Developed by the Russians, they use it to power the world's fastest nuclear submarine.

News Notes

 

EPA Declares Burning Wood Is Carbon Neutral.

The Hill (4/23, Green) reports the EPA yesterday “declared” that “burning trees is carbon neutral.” EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt made the announcement “during a meeting with Georgia forestry leaders.” The declaration “signals an administrative policy shift that will treat all burning of biomass as carbon-neutral ‘when used for energy production at stationary sources,’ according to an EPA statement.”

        The Washington Post (4/23, Mooney, Grandoni) reports Pruitt said, “Today’s announcement grants America’s foresters much-needed certainty and clarity with respect to the carbon neutrality of forest biomass.” However, “the idea that biomass is carbon neutral is contentious among scientists, who fear that forests, once cleared so their wood can be used for energy, may not grow back as planned.”

        The Washington Examiner (4/23, Siegel) reports the agency “says it will consider biomass as carbon neutral when devising regulatory actions on energy production from power plants, such as a potentially revised, more modest Clean Power Plan.”
