Fuel made from Carbon Dioxide and water
« on: May 29, 2015, 04:01:20 pm »
Audi has created a project where they are making diesel fuel from carbon dioxide and water. The process releases oxygen as a byproduct. The process is 70% efficient from an energy input standpoint. This allows the creation of a net zero carbon emission fuel cycle with just an input of energy. This process is a winner on two fronts-- it creates a'normal' fuel that will work in any existing (diesel for now) vehicle. This gives the vehicle good range, power, etc. needed for practical driving (short range is a big disadvantage of electric vehicles). And the waste products from the vehicle's operation are reprocessed back into fuel. The fuel can be produced efficiently in large-scale plants, with green power (Solar, wind, nuclear, etc.) used to operate the process.

This is a great news! Audi has also an e-gas production plant in Germany that also uses CO2 and H2O to get methane.

About that e-gasplant:

Well, not that e-gas thing, but acording their blog, they want to do something in New Mexico to get diesel and ethanol:

Because the oil companies don't want it to.
