Djerassem Le Bemadjiel is an inventor from Chad who has developed a system and method for the autonomous production of fluid and electricity. This geological engineer and expert in stimulation and production of oil wells, and young minister (38) of Energy and Oil since January 2013, is not at his first invention. But this one is exceptional, if not revolutionary. Thus, it has already been patented, like in Australia for example.
The invention relates to the methods and systems for pumping or transferring fluid and producing energy continuously and autonomously. It is made up of closed thermodynamic systems arranged in series, and is based on the discovery of the principles of autonomous sequential depression and compression. It is the expansion of a gas which provides the work required for pumping or transferring liquid from one compartment to another.
In other words, the invention is a combination of the principles of thermodynamics and the laws of fluid mechanics that allow the system to produce its own energy (electricity) to operate.
There are numerous applications related to this principle. One of the most interesting, given the incessant power cuts in most African countries, is the production of electricity. Indeed, this invention would enable the fabrication of artificial waterfalls to generate clean power (without fossil fuel or carbon dioxide emissions).
To the extent that in fluid mechanics any phenomenon that works may be reproduced at any scale, it is therefore possible to increase electric production from 10 to 100 megawatts, etc. Thus, theoretically, entire towns, villages, etc. can be supplied with electricity 24 hours.
Another application is about water supply. Thanks to this system, water can flow without stopping, independently (perpetually), from a borehole or a well without consuming external energy (electric or human). Therefore, it could be possible to rethink, in Africa, the water production and distribution system.
Let's wait for the large-scale prototype on which the inventor, it is hoped, will continue to work on despite his heavy current responsibilities.
This inventor won the First Prize at the African Invention and Technological Innovation Exhibition (SAIIT), is Knight of the Order of Civil Merit and also received the Prize of the Ministry of Industry and Inventions of the region of Nizhny Novgorod (Russia) and "Regionmettrans SARL" for the development of innovative technologies during the 39th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
