Breakthrough tech to convert CO2 to methane 7Carbon Sciences Inc. has developed a breakthrough technology that can convert carbon dioxide emissions directly into liquid portable fuel such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
Carbon Science proposed to use large amounts of low-quality algae to capture the emissions, digest the algae into methane and produce liquid fuels through the new gas-to-liquids process.
This will help eliminate the world?s dependence on petroleum.
The clean technology company?s gas-to-liquids fuel technology takes inspiration from a natural life-support process found in some microorganisms, which involves the transformation of carbon dioxide into fuel molecules such as methane, methanol and butanol.
However, the company found this process slow and inefficient as proteins expire after a few cycles of transforming carbon dioxide molecules into fuel molecules.
The microorganisms need to exert a good amount of energy to produce new proteins. Login to Post a Comment
