mgcivOn December, Pan Stanford Publishing will publish “The Magnesium Civilization” (English Edition).

Description:
The use of fossil fuels damages the global environment, and the supply of oil is becoming unstable. However, it is difficult to fully replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources like solar cells.
A magnesium-recycling society is a promising solution against these problems. Seawater contains 1800 trillion tons of magnesium, which can be smelted with “solar-pumped lasers” created directly from sunlight. Thus magnesium acts as a solar-energy reservoir. It can be used for metal-air-fuel cells for automobiles and power plants. An automobile with a zinc-air-fuel cell achieved a mileage of 600 km in 2003, and a magnesium-air-fuel cell can give 3 times more energy which is 7.5 times more effective than that of a lithium-ion battery. Solar-pumped laser regenerates metal magnesium from combusted magnesium oxide.
Moreover, low-cost desalination with solar power will be a promising solution to the global water shortage.
The Time magazine elected Prof. Yabe as one of the “Heroes of the Environment, 2009.”

With this book, Prof. Yabe proposes a revolutionary approach to the renewable energy issue with the magnesium civilization concept. His invention is a method to not only produce energy without harming the environment but also produce clean water, another most important substance for the sustenance of life. The technology generates laser from sunlight and magnesium from seawater with a resource lasting 100,000 years! (Recep Ozkan, Chairman, Japan International Group Corporation)

Dr. Takashi Yabe has proposed an extremely well-reasoned argument for why (and how) we could conceivably switch to a magnesium civilization to fuel our world and our future. We ignore this book at our own risk. (James P. Clark, Founder/Chairman, The World Technology Network)

Dr. Takashi Yabe and Mr. Tatsuya Yamaji’s work is a great example of Japan’s leadership, innovation and thoughtfulness for the global environment. Just as the name suggests, it holds the potential of transforming our world to a real sustainable energy civilization. Truly inspirational and a must, not just to read, but to act upon! (Sanjeev Sinha, President, Sun and Sands Advisors, Japan)
