Like sand in the desert - like salt in the sea

  Like sand in the desert — like salt in the sea


Believers of the doomsday cult “Limits to Growth” constantly want to make us believe in a hopeless situation. After all, the bible of this religion denies renewable energy and recycling. Without renewable energy and recycling, our situation would really be just as rotten as presented in this book.

However, after there is obviously more and more renewable energy, these try to fuel doubts that there are far from sufficient raw materials for it. The 2 most decisive things for a functional energy transition are photovoltaics and batteries. The most important material for photovoltaics is silicon. Most of the sand deposits consist of quartz (silicon dioxide SiO2), hence the saying “like sand in the desert”.

Until now, lithium was the decisive material for a decent battery, everything else could be forgotten. The main lines of batteries were lithium cobalt ion, lithium manganese and lithium iron phosphate. Here is the development of lithium use and lithium mining.

In the 1996 annual report, there are 12 million tons of mineable reserves. Of course, even then, it was known that 0.1 ppm of lithium occurs in seawater. 0.1 ppm is after all 100 tons per km³. 100 tons are about 10,000 pieces of 100 kWh batteries. But it is called “mining worthy”, so technically and economically possible mining.

In the annual report of 2022 there are 89 million tons of mineable deposits. This can be combined 3 reasons: more exploration, better mining methods, higher prices (the limit of “mineable” is shifted upwards). 89 million tons is still 100 kWh battery for each of 10 billion people. Surely the mineable deposits will increase in the next years. It could also reach the point where filtering from seawater is technically and economically feasible.

  Sodium exists like salt in the sea


Salt is NaCl - sodium and chlorine. CATL is starting to produce sodium batteries. Electric scooter manufacturer NIU has already announced mopeds with sodium batteries for 2023. The GEMINI next generation house will also use sodium batteries. Currently, they are at 160 Wh/kg. The best lithium cobalt ion cells are 270 Wh/kg and lithium iron phosphate is at 230 Wh/kg.

This was not always the case. BYD had always relied on its own lithium iron phosphate cells. The first electric car with more than 2 seats and over 300 km range was not the Tesla S, but the BYD e6 in 2010. Here is my report on the BYD e6 from the Geneva Motor Show 2010. At that time the battery technology was still very weighty: 700 kg battery for 60 kWh, only 86 Wh per kg. The BYD e6 was mostly used as a cab and had the temperament of the legendary Mercedes Diesel Taxi a 1/2 century ago with 70 kW engine power for 2 tons curb weight.

Around 2016 there was then a better version, 80 kWh battery, there brought out from 700 kg already 117 Wh/kg. Exactly as much as in 2008 with the first generation of the Tesla Roadster. So still much less than the first generation of sodium batteries with 160 Wh/kg. CATL thinks that the next generation of sodium batteries will already reach 200 Wh/kg.

It could well happen that in the future lithium cobalt ion will be used in the most expensive cars, lithium iron phosphate in the middle class and sodium in cheap cars, stationary applications and large ships. If a 200,000 ton ship has 50,000 ton sodium batteries on board, then that is also 10,000 MWh in 2nd generation and 50 MW of propulsion can be supplied for 200 hours. This is the range of large container and cruise ships.

  Radical turnaround required


Drastically generate more renewable energy, drastically reduce unnecessary energy consumption. When a family moves to a GEMINI next generation house, both are realized, even if the house is placed in a cheap area where more driving is required. Let's assume that the demand increases from 10,000 km to 25,000 km per year. The previous dwelling burned 20,000 kWh of natural gas per year for heating and hot water. For the 10,000 km of annual driving, 600 liters with about 6,000 kWh of energy content were burned. This compares to 800 kWh of self-produced solar power for heating and hot water and 4,200 kWh of self-produced solar power for driving after the relocation.

Due to the relocation and the switch to an electric car, not only 33,000 kWh/a – 5,000 kWh/a (space heating, hot water, driving) = 28,000 kWh/a of solar power generation were added, but also the consumption of 26,000 kWh/a of thermal energy was eliminated.

This calculation if for Germany. More south is much more solar electricity yield.

  GEMIN next Generation Inc.: 50.000 € on the account


An account for “GEMINI next Generation Inc. in foundation” was prepared at RAIKA Salzburg on August 2, 2022. On Tuesday I was informed that a legal question still had to be clarified. I received the answer on Friday: The account can only be activated when I can prove that I have more than 70,000 € at my disposal.

The solution to this problem: The money will be collected at the account of the Association for the Promotion of Infinitism.

Investing in such turbulent times? Right now! The GEMINI next Generation house is the ideal product for such turbulent times. It is practically like selling extremely safe and comfortable lifeboats aboard the Titanic.

The foundation with 70,000 € share capital is organized in 1,000 € investment packages of 700 shares each and a 0.05% allotment certificate. Through the allotment certificate, the owner will be allotted every 2,000th of the newly issued shares in future capital increases. It is possible to purchase 2 to 4 investment packages in the first phase. In special cases, this can be reduced to one.

This gives the first investors a considerable advantage over later investors. Around 2027 I expect a market capitalization of one billion, then a €1,000 investment package is worth €500,000. If everything goes smoothly, a market capitalization like Tesla's is possible in 2045. Of course, Tesla has had very difficult times on the way up, most recently with the start of production of the Model 3.
