mgciv_book“Magnesium Bunmeiron (Magnesium Civilization)” (by YABE Takashi, YAMAJI Tatsuya) will be published from PHP-shinsho on Dec 16th.
(This book is written in Japanese.)

What is new energy that takes the place of fossil fuel? 60% of Japan’s land will be covered with solar cells if demand for energy in Japan is supplied just with them. Underground will be filled with Hydrogen tanks in Hydrogen society. There is not enough Lithium for EVs. Moreover, electric energy will have to be increased up to 150% of the present time to supply demand of water in the world by 2025.
“Magnesium-based energy cycle” is a solution for these problems.
