In research articles and patents several methods have been proposed for the
extraction of zero-point energy from the vacuum. None has been reliably
demonstrated, but the proposals remain largely unchallenged. In this paper the
feasibility of these methods is assessed in terms of underlying thermodynamics
principles of equilibrium, detailed balance, and conservation laws. The methods
are separated into three classes: nonlinear processing of the zero-point field,
mechanical extraction using Casimir cavities, and the pumping of atoms through
Casimir cavities. The first two approaches are shown to violate thermodynamics
principles, and therefore appear not to be feasible, no matter how innovative their
execution. The third approach does not appear to violate these principles.
