It burns natural gas and emits CO2. Don't believe the hype. Its a glorified nat gas generator.

science of Bloomberg box

Hello all,
This is not a natural gas generator...every paint booth manufacturer that has to use this very same system to clean the air...is identical.
as the natural gas is used to heat the ceramics...that have high volume blowers...drawing in the surrounding air...and in the process a huge amount of static electricity is generated.
I helped install such system for a major manufacturer....and the grounding system was very very very high tech.
The surrounding soil had to meet specific tests and a security fence with sharp prison type wire installed to keep animals away...people also.
When the system was running...if you touched the silos that held the heated creamics and got grounded...you most likely would die.

Bloomberg box emits 1875 F hot air??? Global warming???
750,000 dollars to install one unit...in areas that are paying 20+ cents per kilowatt for electricity...running 24/7.
Yupper that is a money saver...sounds good...and it is truthful.
There is no way a home consumer could even get it set in place; much less justify the daily operating costs.

As Paul Harvey used to say..."And that is the rest of the story!"

I think the point is that if technology improves, and the device is mass produced, the costs can come down enough that it can be affordable.
