A small British company has produced the first "petrol from air" using a revolutionary technology that promises to solve the energy crisis as well as helping to curb global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Air Fuel Synthesis in Stockton-on-Tees has produced five litres of petrol since August when it switched on a small refinery that manufactures gasoline from carbon dioxide and water vapour.

The company hopes that within two years it will build a larger, commercial-scale plant capable of producing a ton of petrol a day. It also plans to produce green aviation fuel to make airline travel more carbon-neutral.

I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

I have heard ordinary petrol engines can run on hydrogen with minimal modifications, much like they run on LPG, with a tank that holds the gas under pressure.

Ofc if this is true, hydrogen gas can be produced with water and electricity. And electricity can be solar, especially in sunny climates.

BMW had an old 7 series that the old petrol v12 was modified to run on H gas with minimal changes apparently, article was online, must have been more than a decade ago, but it since vanished off the internets.

What happened meanwhile, now three years on?

Are the scientists still alive?

Or was it just a canard, circenses for the slaves?


:dunno:
"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

A local guy did this a couple yrs back - converted to hydrogen gas - he was told to take it off the road under a huge penalty of failure to do so , citing that he was illegally avoiding the petrol tax ( which the state uses the maintain roads ) :wissl:
we all know the alternatives are there and work ......some inventors have paid the ultimate price , I remember several yrs back after having no luck with private or public funding , a guy was taking his designs to Europe and was found dead in his car at the airport.
