14. I agree. This said there are many paths for the single electron transfer reduction of iron.

I just sighed and forgot about that part, after mumbling some nonsense to myself about krypton-85.

The real reason I pointed out this fine paper - and it is a fine paper - is to draw attention to the often overlooked fact that iron reduction is dependent on carbon from dangerous fossil fuels and that real progress is still on a lab scale.

I believe that we can ultimately displace this dependence, not only for iron but for all other industrial metals, but it is not something that is simple, and the fact is that so called "renewable energy" is not even remotely up to the task, a task - especially for the wind industry - for which it depends for its existence.
