Two methods have been developed which can burn oil in the presence of water. The first method burns hydrogen. The hydrogen can be produced from water by d.c. electrical energy generated by a thermoelectric device composed of multistage semiconductor thermocouples attached to the side wall of a conventional oil burner. The second method reforms oil with a high temperature water vapour jet. The generated hydrogen is burnt in situ with the residual oil vapor. Combustion with water has two merits: (1) the combustion temperature becomes higher resulting in a higher efficiency of the heat exchanger, and (2) near perfect combustion of oil can be achieved minimizing soot.

Our Deepest Condolences

   ERHC On The Move, and it readers, convey to the President, Government and people of Nigeria our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences upon the death of President Umaru Yar'Adua.

   With you we, too, felt that he was a bright hope for Nigeria's future and a man who could lead his country out of the morass and mire of corruption and instability in which it has long foundered.

   At the same time, we extend to President Goodluck Jonathan our best wishes and great hope that his tenure as President will be marked by the completion of his predecessor's unfinished tasks and the adoption of greater goals for the future.

   It is our wish, President Jonathan, that the Nigerian people may embrace your presidency and help you to guide it to greater levels of achievement and the fullest rewards of democracy.

Most sincerely,

Joe Shea
