under the working title ©SILANAT.
MERA FONTE researches, produces, and uses a new energy source based on silicon (from sand) and nitrogen (from the air) – the world's first inorganic fuel – ad absolutum without CO2 emissions and completely free of toxins. It burns with air (≈20% oxygen and ≈80% nitrogen) and produces no CO2. How is this possible? Because it is a logical consequence of the fact that fossil fuels are based on hydrocarbons (CmHn), while ©SILANAT consists of hydrosilanes (SinH2n+2). Period! The lesson is clear: CO2 emissions from piston combustion engines or jet engines heat up the nitrogen in the air (≈80% of the atmosphere). This is the real cause of global warming. A fact that is conspicuously concealed. ©SILANAT, on the other hand, cools down those huge amounts of heated nitrogen in the air thanks to nitrogen combustion. This also increases the efficiency of ©SILANAT by a factor of 3 to 4. The underlying logic: the largest proportion of the combustion energy is therefore not released (lost) into the atmosphere in the form of climate-damaging heat energy but is used to drive the engine. Its efficiency is therefore >90% (compared to fossil fuels at ≈30%). Draw the comparison “LED vs. burning light bulb”!
Further usages associated with ©SILANAT such as e.g. the "Si3N4" produced during ©SILANAT combustion as a cheaper and easier or faster to process "diamond substitute" for the respective branches of industry underline the common benefit linked to the project in a variety of ways. In addition, this fuel has other unique selling points such as Si3N4 as a high-quality ceramic research "waste material" for semiconductor technology. On the other hand, ©SILANAT is significantly cheaper to produce than fossil fuels. It is therefore of both economic interest and ecological relevance. The dwindling oil wells in this world make this new fuel indispensable – especially since it also protects the environment and supports the climate! In its statutes, the FEAT Group has declared human health and environmental protection to be a legal maxim. MERA FONTE expressly follows this fundamental legal mandate. Hence the choice of company’s name, which comes from Latin (mera fonte) and means "pure source" or "from the original source". In 2016, FEAT scientists took up this challenge and, in the course of their completed research work, they were able to answer the question of why this innovation had not yet found market access...
