    The US has over 2,000 trillion cubic feet of known, but unexplored, natural gas reserves. Our CO2 based GTL technology, when fully commercialized, can be used to produce enough gasoline for the US for 47 years without competing with current natural gas consumption of 25 trillion cubic feet, and without using a teaspoon of oil, says Byron Elton CEO, Carbon Sciences.

    The EIA (Energy Information Administration, USA) predicts that world energy consumption will skyrocket 49 percent over the next 25 years. Of all the alternative fuel technologies under development, GTL technology is the only one with the ability to significantly replace petroleum and provide the nearly 140 billion gallons of gasoline we use each year,? adds Byron Elton.

    I glanced at GTL in Wiklepeda and found some heavy chemistry (for me). There is an industrial LNG, Liquidfied Natural Gas, plant in Savannah Ga that has sat mostly unused for 30 yrs as not price effective. Built out of town in case of explosion and now town has grown.

    In scarcity of resources people have always looked for alternative ways of substitutions. GTL (gas to liquid) is one among those to obtain an energy source in a form that can be used. What people often forget is the low of energy conservation. We must prioritize energy production by the extent of energy consumed in production too.
