Flame Investigation - protect this earth and help!
Flame fractal by Max Renardus
After his retirement he made a tourist journey toward his birth country and regarded the land and their people again, but now with his, in chemical and physical science,
His most shocking observation was the fast deforestation due to logging of the mangrove forests, for domestic cooking.
Not only erosion of the land is promoted in this way, but moreover, destroying of the marine life will occur on a large scale.
other hand he became aware of the deposits of large quantities of the mineral asphalt on several islands.
Further research directed to other alternative
fuels, revealed the possibility that on the poor soils, that not could be used for food production, the Jathropa crop easily could be grown.
From it a vegetable oil can be fabricated, that in principle has potentials for cooking and lighting applications.
A serious problem had been shown however, that both asphalt, as well as jathropa oil, generate heavy carbon smoke when burning.
Dr. Oomen, in his professional life
familiar with the solving of difficult chemical and physical problems, found here his motivation to tackle this smoke generation process.
In his idealistic mind, he considered it to be his duty to mobilize his considerable skills, in order
to help the local people, with whom he had been so familiar, in his childhood years.
Now 70 years older, and with a declining health, he is forced to terminate his investigations before his targets are reached totally.
