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 [...]
