The ‘EMP Engine'

The ‘EMP Engine’ is the 8th issue in this P5GO sub-theme. Energy conversion to electricity is important to the UN Goals for Sustainability, as it also is for the 4th Industrial and Social Revolutions. Such an issue is contraversive though, because the sustainable alternative is opposing the most powerful oligarchies in the world, - the shipping and the energy industries. Still, the electrification of ships is as realistic as for the cars. Yet, it also causes positive effects for; domestic productions for new sustainable industries; increased income to heal from the diesel pollutions; and can finances the ‘basic income’ to elevate education and prevent social unrests. All-in-all, it is very easy, sustainably and cost-efficient to do. In order to conclude so, there will be some theoretical talk-throughs concerning the EMP engine, the UN SDGs and EU IM regulations.

The EMP engine is presented in a video at the website CloudMaps and YouTube. Here is a brief summary of the presentation: “The EMP engine is a hybrid upgrade of the diesel and gasoline engine to an electric engine, where the explosive pulses are substituted with Electro Magnetic Pulses (EMP). Such an upgrade in the shipping industry will considerably improve the transport, the economy and the environment. There is significant difference between the two kinds of engines. A 4-stroke diesel/gasoline engine is only 20% energy-efficient and utilizes only one of the 4 strokes. The same function can be made by magnetism that utilizes each stroke and is therefore 4 times as efficient. Also, the electric engines are 3 times as energy-efficient than the gasoline engines. This makes the EMP engine about 10 times as efficient. Moreover, the energy source to the EMP engine is free if utilized from sustainable sources like solar, wind or wave energy. Maybe most important, the electric engines do not pollute at all – neither CO2 (carbon-di-oxides) nor NOx or SOx (Nitrogen-oxides and Sulphur-oxides from diesel). Further pinpoints from the presentation are:

Still, there are much more into this innovative EMP engine than presented in this blog. First of all, this simplified version of the EMP engine is the basis of a patent application about an EMP system with much broader utilizations. Next, the EMP engine should be 3D printed by the shipyard industry as a clone in non-magnetic materials in order to substitute the metallic diesel/gasoline engines. The cloned EMP engines’ cabinets should be modular so it is easy to replace the originals. The electric power source should have backup with generators. Surplus energy productions should be stored in accumulators. The EMP engines will have great potentials in fine-tuning of frequency, amplitudes and wave-forms for max power utilization and synchronizations. Other devices and instruments on the ships will gain by a fully electric and computer driven infrastructure on the ships. Finally, even though the commercial break-through for el-car was delayed throughout the previous century, the break-through for the EMP ship engine should come simultaneously with the el-cars, - in this 4th Industrial Revolution.

The gravity of shipping pollution is far too unknown to the authorities and the public. Therefore, here is the whole article from cited. (Ref article: New Atlas / The Guardian: “Big polluters: one massive container ship equals 50 million cars”).

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are well in alignment with the upgrade to EMP engines. “The 17 SDGs is the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with 169 targets between them. Spearheaded by the United Nations through a deliberative process involving its 193 Member States, as well as global civil society, the goals are contained in paragraph 54 United Nations Resolution A/RES/70/1 of 2015. The Resolution is a broader intergovernmental agreement that acts as the Post 2015 Development Agenda (successor to the Millennium Development Goals). (ref Wikipedia and the SDG sites, see links hereunder.)

“The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are a global vision for humanity signed by 193 heads of state, yet, everyone’s responsibility: 1) End poverty in all its forms everywhere. 2) End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. 3) Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. 4) Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. 5) Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. 6) Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. 7) Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. 8) Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. 9) Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation. 10) Reduce inequality within and among countries. 11) Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. 12) Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. 13) Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. 14) Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development. 15) Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss. 16) Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. 17) Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.”

Upgrading ships with EMP engines are directly alignment with the UN SDG; 7 energies, 9 industrializations, 13 climates, 14 marine resources, 15 terrestrial ecosystems. It can also cause positive indirect effects on the rest of the SDGs. Also note that the 17 UN SDGs covers a lot more than merely climate change from CO2, but health damage caused by NOx and SOx pollutions as well.

The Dane shipping enterprise Mærsk (Maersk) is particularly mentioned in the article from New Atlas / The Guardian. There are several aspects that make Mærsk interesting to this issue. The Dane government has developed close relations to Chinese trade. Mærsk will be a major importer of MIC2025 products to the EU through the extended Panama Canal. Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland might rather become outposts for imported goods since the Dexit excluded full federal membership with the Europol and the Eurojust. Most alarming though, is the major crypto attack at Mærsk fright system last week, covered up as a simple ransom-ware case. Yet, it made the whole logistic system paralyzed. No-one knew what the thousands of containers contained anymore. However, that fatal directed attack was no ordinary ransom crime, but rather appears like a Big Red guerilla-attack from the inside. Therefore, there should be no doubt that European authorities of border control, police, court and even defense need to be closely involved in such movement of goods, - that might not qualify for the EU restrictions for Health, Environment and Security.

Redistribution of welfare is a main topic in social revolutions. That is so for this 4th RS as for the 3 previous ones. The simple reason is that the Industrial Revolutions cause major improvements and redistributions that has to be balance in order to avoid massive miseries, desperations and riots. There are already some important suggestions debated about redistributions in this 4th Industrial and Social Revolutions:

Only the confederal EU, not the single European nations, is strong enough to deal with the dominant global actors of shipping and energy. Therefore, only a EU directive, promoting clean European energy, can force the polluting shipping industry to change in accordance with the UN SDG and EU IM. Still, from this position, the attempts here is to free this knowledge via the hyperspace – like this publication – that provide some technical solutions and sustainable arguments for immediate upgrading diesel engines to EMP engines. Then, any market actor in the shipping industry can realize the EMP engines. Such an innovation can revoke the declined European shipyard industry, - and provide the ships with free and clean energy instead of expensive and polluting. Just spread the idea and do the Start-Ups.

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) was introduced in the previous UU 2017.juni.30. “OMD had an unusual concept with a vocal on bass and another on synth. The synth pop group were inspired by artists like Brian Eno and Kraftwerk. With the release of the first single ‘Electricity’, they were able to build a studio, which allowed them to record on four-track with four musicians.” The association to this blog is the electrification of energy consumption, - especially in shipping with the EMP Engine.
