This new zero pollution technology is a method of creating, storing and transferring intense heat for use as power. It is low energy input but has a very high output.
The technologies I was most intrigued by in Sumba, all of which are being implemented at Nihiwatu Eco-Resort, are mini-gasifiers, which assist in powering the resort from its own waste, a new solar thermal system for air conditioning, and the latest development, which is called a Plasma Thermal Battery. This new zero pollution technology is a method of creating, storing and transferring intense heat for use as power. It is low energy input but has a very high output. It uses no fossil fuels and is scalable, to any size. An advanced motor attaches to the plasma system and runs on steam, or in some cases, hot air in a closed loop system. One of the uses that has been found, outside of power production, is that it makes a terrific pool heater. It can save up to 90 per cent in energy costs and doesn't pollute. Next to solar - this is as clean as it gets.
You most likely haven't heard of the company producing these impressive innovative technologies, and for good reason. They don't maintain a website as their clients and technology partners prefer to fly under the radar and keep a low profile.

Quantum Green Technologies
Nonetheless, they should be acknowledged for their trail blazing efforts. Quantum Green Technologies, LLC ("QGT") is a four-year-old company founded by film producer and science advisor Christopher Patton. QGT develops, commercializes and integrates clean energy, water, waste and transportation solutions. They arrange funding, assist in building profitable businesses, and provide consultation to worldwide markets through licensing and pilot projects.
The genesis of the company was based on the idea that a lot of really marvelous technologies fell behind at the beginning of the 20th Century due to funding, or in some cases the materials to make ideas work, simply didn't exist. Many of these like steam, compressed air and solar thermal were proven to be clean, powerful and renewable. QGT are bringing them all back with a 21st century upgrade.
