Pretty interesting stuff. 500 C (932 F) is a bit warm for homeowners but a nice fit for some industries.

That temp and higher is in the firebox of most wood stoves, furnaces and boilers. The question is how much storage volume is needed?

It would be nice to store it under a basement floor and also run lines for baseboards through it!
