A talk on an R & D process in which only methane is vaporized and recovered from the methane hydrate layer by microwave application. Methane hydrate is trapped in a cage-like structure with water molecules, without chemical bonding, which is more unstable than ice and release methane molecules by collapses when it is shaken by microwaves. This situation was confirmed by the first principle simulation. We are preparing the experiment for proof of principle.
