Harvesting Fuel From Rainwater

Researching H202 can leave you with quite the headache. From health benefits to rocket fuel many things are possible with this, what you thought was, simply a brown jug at the convenience store. Never questioning where it came from or its original natural healing benefits.

When writing this finding old research is actually quite hard to come by. Most of the studies and links provided have totally disappeared completely.
Freezing water with H202 at a certain temperature will only freeze the water itself, leaving the H202 easily extractable. When H2O2 is a small percentage of the solution i.e. less than 40%, the ice that forms is mainly water, so that the percentage of H2O2 left in solution steadily increases as more ice forms. However, some of the H2O2 freezes in the ice also, so there is a loss that gets worse as the percentage of H2O2 approaches 62%. This is a useful and easy way to concentrate very weak H2O2 solutions however.
Hydrogen peroxide rockets can be used as a monopropellant, but as such, it is not very energetic. But fuels can be injected into the decomposed HTP, and at the temperature of the steam and oxygen mix, the fuel readily ignites spontaneously.
The gas mixture after the decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide contains oxygen. The thrust force is increased if this oxygen is used to burn an organic fuel, before it is released through the nozzle. Such a rocket is called a bipropellant liquid fuel rocket.
Hydrogen peroxide is a viable, alternative energy storage medium, competing with hydrogen gas, biogas, biodiesel and alcohol. H2O2 is an energy-dense fuel that burns as cleanly as H2, but requires no oxidizer as it is included inside the fuel. Actually, it does not burn, it decomposes, with a release of tremendous energy, close to the energy per mole of H2. It is like water, so it does not need a pressure vessel to contain it. Over about 80% H2O2
(where H2O is the impurity), it is explosive and extreme mechanical shock or heat can set it off. It is “burned” in jets and other devices by catalytic decomposition. You can get 3500 psi steam out of it! Helicopters have flown with rotors containing H2O2 jets on their blade tips – no tail rotors are needed and no central engine. Very cheap and simple propulsion is possible with peroxide. Stable storage, relatively easy to produce, high energy output. Only emits water vapor and oxygen. Automobile retrofits would not require much in the way of modifications. Would not require overhaul of existing fuel storage and distribution infrastructure.
It would actually be simple on a large scale to harvest H202 from rainwater by simply freezing it or extracting it in a simple cost effective way. No drills, no fracking, and anyone could do it from home. Another option would be to grow something like hemp, turning it into fuel, plastic, and more while also harvesting the H202 for cleaner more effective fuel. We all know this will never happen with oil being the control mechanism that it is but on a local scale it is quite possible to create something.
