I'd be really interested in seeing the exact process used in creating the iron powder, whether they're having to grind up refined iron or if it's actually created as a powder; and whether the same process could be adopted for aluminum.

If it can, you could potentially make a continuous aluminum-air battery, and produce electricity directly instead of heat.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
