Today I plan to take my son to go to the metal recycler and get some money for all the cans we've collected over the last two months - I'm expecting about $50.00.
This morning I googled for "recycling aluminum cans" and came up with this link:
It tells how there is nearly 6X the energy of gasoline and 6X the heating power of natural gas or kerosene of the same weight.
The site also discusses how cars could be powered off of the metal at a much cheaper price than gasoline.
Aluminum is the most abundant metal on earth and there's nearly an unlimited supply to recycle. Burned aluminum produces a powder that can be turned back into useable aluminum.
The site seems as if they are going to be "selling something" - come next summer.
Have any of you ever heard of burning aluminum for energy or heat?
