The U.S. Patent Office has awarded me a patent for a cost-effective retrofit to steam turbine power plants that will reduce their fuel consumption and emissions by more than 10% while preserving their electricity output (Heat Rate reduction of more than 10%).  The annual savings in fuel cost and carbon credits will yield a payback on the retrofit in the range of 2 years.  If implemented widely this invention could reduce fossil fuel consumption in the U.S. by more than one quadrillion BTUs (one quad) per year.

I am seeking a partner who has access to a steam turbine power plant to install a demonstration project.  Because of the large decarbonization implications of this technology, funding for a demonstration/pilot should be available if an experienced operator with a credible site and equipment participates in the proposal.  The retrofit can be installed in such a way that it can be removed after the pilot project is completed and tested, leaving the facility in its original state.

Please contact me if you are interested in exploring the possibility of working with me to implement this pilot project.
