Well, after incineration the fixated CO2 is freed again...
If not, the increase of mass is surely larger than "SEVERAL
PERCENT". This comment is not to support the above theory,
of course, but to put the discussion on fair grounds.
What makes me shudder is the mass defect in these reactions.
Mg + O --> Ca + 1.5 GJ/mol, according E=mc^2. Damn dangerous,
these plants, but cold fusion was never without risks :-)
