Pitch your solution.

Solving the fossil fuel production quotas for crude oil fractioning by salvaging components that has been lost in air, water and soil; and other components that has already been make into organic compound derivatives such as plastics and asphalts.

What specific problem are you solving?

Tar sand oil is extremely corrosive and can eat the metallic pipelines in the XL Keystone; and, production and consumption of fossil fuels, over the years, has been pervasive in every aspect of the living being, being environmental, economical, social or political.

Leaking oil pipes can damage and pollute nearby watersheds, and ecological niches with spills. The evaporated, or burned fossil fuels are most of time incomplete or if complete will generate enormous amount of carbon derived organic compounds that can be harmful to life or to the mineral and chemical composition of water, air and soil. Manufacturing of oil derived compounds such as plastics and other organic compounds are littering the landfills, streets, the air and oceans.These exaggerated additions of organic compounds can exacerbate the natural composition of the these living mediums. 

The environmental pollution of by products of fossil fuel production could be detrimental in causing disasters, such as mass extinctions, or catastrophic weather changes.

What is your solution?

 Different plastic recycling number 5-7 can be recycled and reused to make asphalt or other plastics, and recyclable plastic 1-4 can be reused, in conjunction after cleaning, extracting organic compounds from air, water, soil to salvage gas, fuel, and other organic compounds for reuse, reduce, and recycle to prevent additional fractioning of crude oil, or tar oil. 

Perhaps the high acidity in (crude sand) tar oil can be mixed with recycling plastic number 5-7 to neutralize and mix these plastics for reuse or transport in the short term to prevent expansion and construction of pipelines.

Strong preference will be given to Native-led solutions that directly benefit and are located within the Indigenous communities. Which community(s) does your solution benefit?

Some of these technologies have to be worked in conjunction with the indigenous scientific communities, technology groups, and oil interests for the timed solution to prevent and reduce pipelines when possible.

Perhaps the indigenous community can help educate in the prevention, mitigation of the environment changes. Perhaps it may have suggestion on how to best survive drastic living conditions in the ever changing environment, by providing food, shelter and water for the needed communities.

Explain how the problem you are addressing, the solution you have designed, and the population you are serving align with the Challenge.

Challenge of possible oil spill from fossil fuel pipelines, and wastes of organic compounds of crude oil fractioning.

 Solutions intend to create a more livable environment for thriving ecosystems, clean watersheds for local food production, and a clean habitat for nearby communities by addressing energy sources such as solar, wind farms, gas reactors or other new developing technologies may be suggested to be used in conjunction with suggested improvements in the existing electricity grid for transmission.

Describe the core technology that powers your solution.

Solution for cleaning air, water and soil by extraction of organic compounds by using cold reverse fractioning (related to fractional condensation of heated compounds when dissolved in air, water and soil) perhaps neutralizing with powdered rock pieces (suggested by one of the comments on the scientific community sites).

Provide evidence that this technology works. Please cite your sources.

Plastic recycling number 1-7.

Fractioning of crude oil by products.

Does this technology introduce any risks? How are you addressing or mitigating these risks in your solution?

Technology risks involve means to reach every realm of organic compound penetration from the upper atmospheric layers, drying savanah regions in Africa and the deepest water bodies in the oceans.

I propose ideas to address local superficial layers of air, soil and water bodies for initial cleaning of organic compounds. More in depth technological adoption might depend on negotiation of technological acceptance by fossil fuel industries.

How do you plan to overcome these barriers?

I intend to complete my job as a mother first and foremost as much as time allow. I intend to share my time to participate and cooperate with ongoing groups and organization to arrive at better solutions.
