...further highlights Nalco's commitment to the auto industry,' said Eric Ouderkirk , director of Marketing for Nalco's Global Manufacturing business. "We are dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that help automakers meet their performance, operational and sustainability goals."
"Some people will tell you that to use green chemistry it costs more, but really, that’s not the case," said Durham. "You have to be knowledgeable of what to select. You can have your cake and eat it too in terms of sustainability, cost and performance."
...But he also insists that real change must be a balance of the idealistic and the realistic. He mused that "most universities and think tanks tend to think in terms of established ideals, not innovative compromise. And most politicians think in terms of short term wins, not lasting reform. We are working to occupy this more interesting space of building actionable solutions."
Other researchers have solved other potential problems of the LFT "Rs indirectly.  If a crash LFTR development program that would be similar in scope to the World War iI Manhattan Project were to be undertaken by 2012, large scale factory production of L:FTRs could be undertaken by 2020.Given a crash program of LFTR development in the next decade, and the potential for rapid deployment through factory production, most American electrical production could be coming from post carbon sources by 2030, and at a lower cost than from either conventional nuclear or renewable energy sources.The LFTR paradigm offers a comprehensive low cost solution to the problem of switching the generation of electricity to post carbon sources.  Because of its potential for rapid expansion, LFTR technology could also provide the generating capacity to support the electrification of ground transportation.  Mini-LFTRs could be used to power ships.  Stand alone small and mini LFTRs could provide electrical energy and heat to isolated communities."
