Air Fuel Synthesis in the news

Great news for network members Air Fuel Synthesis who have had their work highlighted in two UK newspapers today including the front page of the Independent. Read all about their work creating synthetic fuels from carbon dioxide at: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/exclusive-pioneering-scientists-turn-fresh-air-into-petrol-in-ma [...]

Carbon Capture and Utilisation in the...

The Centre for Low Carbon Futures has today released a report providing the first comprehensive technical and economic assessment of carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) as a viable but poorly understood option for reducing carbon emissions. The report is a collaboration between CO2Chem, a UK research council project aimed at developing a UK [...]

Microbes with tweaked DNA can convert sunlight and carbon dioxide into oil, but will it ever power our cars? http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21028136.200-renewable-oil-ancient-bacteria-could-fuel-modern-life.html

Creating Jet Fuel from the CO2 in the...

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 captu [...]
