NucleOculture: combined production of electricity, liquid fuels, fish, plants (Richard McDonald) USofA29.Nov.2015
Richard McDonald, is a retired research physicist from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Sustainable access to food, water, and energy is critical to the survival of the 7+ billion persons on Earth, and efficient utilization of present resources and technologies is key to achieving this goal. Symbiotic efficiencies can be had by combining energy generation with other processes to recover heat normally wasted in energy generation.
