Fuel from water, carbon dioxide and sunlight: the solution to fight global warming

-

Scientists in Switzerland claim to have figured out how to make jet fuel from nothing but water, carbon dioxide and sunlight.

A new study published in the journal Joule explains how the team built a solar tower that controls the entire process. The tower uses solar energy to produce synthetic alternative fuels instead of fossil fuels.

The kerosene produced by the solar tower is said to be suitable for normal aviation use, including storage and flight – which is a most interesting proposition given the very high carbon footprint of air travel.

Finding better ways to generate energy globally has never been more important.

Many people around the world are still feeling the pinch of rising gas prices, and countries around the world are struggling to meet their energy needs as they seek energy independence from Russia.

While some U.S. power grids are completely collapsing, states like California are working hard to provide renewable energy that does not exacerbate climate change.

Jet fuel is as closely linked to climate change as the power grids. Hopefully, energy experts will continue until they can show promising results.
