John, The IEA numbers are BS. To recover the capital cost without any other costs, the energy cost would be Capital cost, $5 billion/1000 MW / (Production, 1000 MW x 8766 x 0.90 x 60 y) = 5.0 x 10^11 cent / 4.73 x 10^11 kWh = 1.057 c/kWh.

* Two common measures of energy are British thermal units (Btu) and joules. All forms of energy can be expressed in these units. One Btu is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water from 39 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. One joule is the amount of energy needed to lift one hundred grams (3.5 ounces) upward by one meter (3.3 feet) while on the surface of the earth.

The Sago Mine disaster was a coal mine explosion on January 2, 2006, at the Sago Mine in Sago, West ia, United States, near the Upshur County seat of Buckhannon.The blast and collapse trapped 13 miners for nearly two days; only one survived. It was the worst mining disaster in the United States since the Jim Walter Resources Mine disaster in Alabama on September 23, 2001, and the worst
Sewage treatment is the process of removing contaminants from municipal wastewater, containing mainly household sewage plus some industrial wastewater.Physical, chemical, and biological processes are used to remove contaminants and produce treated wastewater (or treated effluent) that is safe enough for release into the environment.A by product of sewage treatment is a semi solid waste or

Of main interests to us is the use of mining as a part of in situ resource utilization, that is making it easier to industrialize and colonize space by removing the need to pay the sky high delta V cost of lugging raw materials up Terra's gravity well.. But in the early stages, asteroid mining start ups cannot be established to provide minerals to space industrialization because there won't
