Response to nationalize the fed (Original post)

Sat May 21, 2016, 12:49 PM

1. H2O2 is not a fuel, it is an oxidizer. What's the reaction that gets the energy out ?

Using H2O2 as an oxidizer in place of O2 is likely to deliver *less* energy. Aside from use as a monopropellant in satellite attitude thrusters, H2O2 is not of much use in energy storage or delivery.

H2O2 in concentrated form also has stability issues ... it can spontaneously decompose, especially in the presence of certain transition metal salts. The more concentrated, the worse the problem.

The ability to produce H2O2 by a new process is interesting, but it's not going to affect energy storage or transportation.
