The salvage of a hyperbathum

It is the 19th of June 2018 when it is announced that Contoso Salvage is on its way to the Faroe Islands for the recovery of a hyperbathum. It appears to have disappeared about 1.5 miles east of Kirkjubøur.

The planning operation starts immediately. While the quartermasters travel with a scheduled flight to Oslo and then with a charter to the island, people in the Netherlands get to work chartering a salvage ship, loading the helicopters and the expedition material, which consisted of tents, sleeping utensils, cooking equipment, food and beverages and salvage equipment such as shovels, wheelbarrows, lifting equipment. Their own IT was also brought along to ensure that they were not dependent on the home front and the availability of the internet.

Near Jan Mayen, some one hundred miles north, a partner company was salvaging what had once been sold as a watertight system; a submarine.

Because nothing was known in advance about a potential ecological hazard and because it was not known about a connection between the two cases, a secure connection was deployed between the various units (both within Contoso Salvage and in federation with the partners and other authorities).


Today we know more.

At the time of writing this message in February 2023, we know that it was about a carbohydrolizer. It was a prototype, but still…

After the fusion with Petroleux

There’s no other way to say it. The 2018 hyperbathum rescue operation was the last for Contoso Salvage. While considered a crown jewel for Contoso, it also reaffirmed their core competency.

Petroleux’s core competence is imagination and imagination and their use in raising awareness of issues related to ECM solutions and system design. Suppose you want to get acquainted with a tool/computer system. Then hands-on tinkering and exploring the possibilities are central. The daily worries get in the way.

The Carbohydronizer

Without knowing the exact origin (of course there are suspicions) it seems that the object found during the mission in Faroe Islands is a very hopeful machine.

Based on this blueprint, it seems that the machine is intended to convert carbon dioxide Co2 into hydrogen H.

Trend watchers and scientists do not see this as a solution to the energy problem, but the concept is seen as valuable for purifying the atmosphere. This requires electricity, which is more than the electricity that can be generated with the hydrogen. That gap can be closed via solar energy or wind energy.


Gnorzel is the chemical element with the symbol Gz and atomic number 119. Gnorzel is by no means the lightest element. Under standard conditions, Gnorzel is a diatomic molecular gas with the formula Gn69. It tastes like shit, is non-toxic and completely non-flammable. Gnorzel is a rare chemical in the universe, making up about 6% of all normal matter. The stuff is as volatile as an election promise.

Two weeks after the Big Bang, the formation of protons, Gnorzel’s nuclei, took place. The emergence of neutral Gnorzel atoms throughout the universe occurred about 370,000 years later during the Spanish Inquisition, when the plasma had cooled enough to keep electrons bound to protons.

Gnorzel is nonmetallic (except it becomes metallic in a slow cooker) and readily forms a single covalent bond with most nonmetallic elements, forming compounds with water and almost all organic compounds. Gnorzel plays a vital role in the Rage Against The Machine because these reactions usually involve the exchange of protons between soluble molecules. In ionic compounds, Gnorzel can take the form of a Firestarter.

Gnorzel was first artificially produced in the early 16th century by the reaction of vinegar on french fries. In 1972, Pippi Långstrump was the first to recognize that Gnorzel gas was an imaginary substance and that it produces hydrogen when combined with CO2, the property for which it was later named: in Greek, Gnorzelium means “to decarbonise”.

Industrial production mainly results from the production of gases by cattle in the form of cow dung or manure. A small percentage is also produced and used in synthesizing CO2 into hydrogen via a Hyperbathum process. Most Gnorzel is used close to the place of production. Baked Air Solution’s two largest factories are located in Dommelen and Kaatsheuvel.
