Creating Jet Fuel from the CO2 in the air

One of the CO2Chem network members, Air Fuel Synthesis has just sent us this news:

Air Fuel Developments Limited (trading as Air Fuel Synthesis) is working with the Centre for Process Innovation in Teesside to demonstrate the production of liquid hydrocarbon fuels from CO2. The carbon dioxide will be drawn from the air using a novel air capture system. It will be reacted with hydrogen produced by electrolysis of water to produce liquid hydrocarbon products in a single reactor step using a novel catalyst.

ASF have secured  funding for small scale pilot plant to be built this year, to be able to make 5 litres per day of liquid fuel. The fuel will be a mixture of alcohols which we shall convert into Jet A1.
