Current technology using polycrystalline electrical steels operates at a maximum magnetic induction of 1.6 T. Here it is proposed to change this to greater than 2 T using patterned polycrystalline iron with energy savings approaching a trillion dollars per year. Such a fundamental change in technology may take a generation.
It is proposed to use the proceeds from this endeavor to give clean drinking water to the world.
