As many people knew of the conspiracy theories about oil companies in cahoot with automobile manufacturers. Many of the energy saving patterns are brought up by automobile and oil companies for greedy reason of course. However, many of these patterns are already expired if there were registered in the '70 and '80. So any entrepreneurs should be abled to copy these patterns without legal recourses. One of the American pattern from the mid-seventy was for an gasoline aggitator, which is the installation in the fuse tank. This device aggitates gasoline into gasoline vapor. This gasoline vapor than passing into the pistons via vapor injectors. This process is more efficient for utilizing in the current automotive engines. The engine would produce less pollution per mileage and each litter of gasoline would have twice the power and efficiency.
Automobile and oil industries could not function and make more profit if they are promoting automobiles with few components and more durable.
gathered here and there much data about conventional, unconventional energy resources.
Also ADB has rich study reports as well as WB. IEAE is another source of nuclear energy.
However Thai problem is they dont have enough reaserch activity, especially agro-ethanol production. the control system of 10 : 90 % formular does not exist. So tank lorry of gasoline and ethanol just drive in and dump the mixture in 'simple brain calculation'.
For your reference, 15% ethanol will melt down all synthetic parts of fuel system and soon you must go to garrage.
20% ethanol must change engine itself.
virtually there is no brand of car which fits 10% ethanol yet. This is another hoax of PTT and government.
Thailand has good resource to develop own version national car (like Malaysian Proton).
Parts industries are well diversified and steel industry is ready to support.
Many of foreign car assemblers form a closter in Thailand for domestic and export market.
Thailand has good resource of cultivated ethanol feul resources.
Bangkok and major regional cities offer narrow road system and pollution gets more serious.
Ethanol 20 % mixture gasoline will offer more cheaper price, present 1.5 baht but 20% mixture can gap 3 baht (1.5 baht subsidy announced by government must be politically corrected. Real subsidy is merely 0.5 baht).
Ethanol 20 % fuel needs new engine and most of engine manufacturer can sell the technology.
E20 car is widely used in Brazil and their car makers may have interest in Thailand.
800 - 1200cc small car will save more than 50% fuel cost to a household.
Thailand dependency on import energy can be reduced to 50% from present 60%.
E20 car reduces much of urban pollution and dilutes green house effect.
E20 car will expand farming area 5 times more and farmers income 2 times, which will make more efficient land use as well as relieving rural poverty.
Automobile manufacture will offer immense, wide technology initiative as well as basic raw material consumption. It needs many of engineering professions and large man power of technicians and skillmen. All of these will build the basic heavy industry.
This is real 'Mega Project'.
No one think merely building urban metro is mega project. It is merely a need for growing urban.
Most of exsiting foreign assemblers may show negative attitude because of their interest in owned existing facilities.
There are many more car makers, who intend to participate in Thai National Car Industry.
It is the time to start this project.
All other alternative energy, solar, biomass, tidal, agro-energy has no real alternative effect to considerably replace the gross needs of Thailand.
Nuclear Energy is the virtual, pragmatic alternative to replace fossil energy.
Nuclear fission (chain reaction) technology is fast advanced to perfect safety. Standard size is 1000mw and gradually enlarges into 1400mw, 1800mw.
Gas/coal power plant is 700mw.
Production cost is, Nuke 1.5 baht, Gas 2.0, Coal 2.5. Solar 120baht,
Breeding fission reactor can use U238 which is available unlimited. Conventional U235 enriched fuel can run for 50-80 years in global reserves.
Thailand produce electricy 70% by gas, 15% hydropower, 10% by coal, 5% by others.
This rate must be changed 20, 20, 25, 5, nuke 30. in term of energy security and environment effects.
I appreciate youe POV on the energy sources and future plans for Thailand.
North Korea has today successfully tested its first Atomic Device. Apart from the strategic importance of this brilliant achievement, N.K. from now on can generate energy from atomic stations without the nagging of the superpowers on each occasion.
Thailand must start a Nuclear programme of its own NOW and not a minute later. For only one purpose : to generate energy and to insure energy supply for the nation for future.
(and I shan't ask what)
Kindly refer to previous posts re the safety (or lack thereof) of nuclear power generation. None of the points I've made have been addressed by your or your predecessors. Why doesn't this surprise me? Three Mile Island, Chernobyl. Could NEVER happen here. Could it?
As regards to "limitless" supplies of uranium, where did you get that from? Uranium is a mined commodity of which my country has the lion's share. Its stocks are most certainly not infinite.
And as for you thinking that a particularly odious regime like Pyonyang's having the Bomb is good, well I think that about says it all really!
