Valuing the African Genius

Djerassem Le Bemadjiel

Djerassem Le Bemadjiel, from Chad, conceived and developed a system and method for the autonomous production of fluid and electricity. He is also a geological engineer and expert in stimulation and production of oil wells.

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 to operate. Thus, there are numerous applications related to this principle. One of them being the production of electricity because 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 a day, 7 days a week (24/7).

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.
