True Story, I was involved with an inventor who had created a dual fuel burner and incinerator that government scientist really thought were genius ideas but he got no traction. Even when there was only two things produced by the incinerator output, CO2 and H2O. How much more do you want...
Then he invented a generation system that could realistic double the output of a generator and another that would be able to use a 5mph stream to power up a village, again no traction. The engineers were amazed at the logic and the simplistic but profound steps forward he had in his designs.
He had a whole bunch of patents .... passed away sometime ago... many of his ideas in the patent office.
We had lots of fun.
