Solar-to-Fuel System Recycles CO2 to Make Ethanol and Ethylene

Scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have harnessed the power of photosynthesis to convert carbon dioxide into fuels and alcohols at efficiencies far greater than plants. The achievement marks a significant milestone in the effort to move toward sustainable sources of fuel. Many systems have successfully reduced carbon dioxide to chemical and fuel precursors, such as carbon monoxide or a...

Carbon-Neutral Cars: Synthetic Fuels Turn CO2 Into a Raw Material

Up until recently, a carbon-neutral combustion engine was the stuff of dreams. Now it may soon become reality. The secret lies in synthetic, or carbon-neutral, fuels, whose manufacturing process captures CO2. In this way, this greenhouse gas becomes a raw material, from which gasoline, diesel, and substitute natural gas can be produced with the help of electricity from renewable sources. "Synthetic fuels can make gasoline- and diesel-powered cars...
