Oxygen-Manufactured Fuel
Air Fuel Synthesis’ New Process Creates Gas Made From Air

By: Jonathon Brown (Rockstar) Nov 8, 12

As the world’s supply of oil continues to dwindle, gas prices rise and the race to find new energy solutions continues with Air Fuel Synthesis’s new method of creating gas made from air and water. While still in the beginning stages, the process involves capturing carbon from the atmosphere and using electrolysis to break water down into hydrogen and oxygen. Next, they put the hydrogen and carbon dioxide together to create synthetic gas.

Sometimes renewable energy methods like this are hampered by the fact that it takes more gas-powered energy to create the new kind of fuel than is actually saved by that fuel. To combat this, Air Fuel Synthesis uses renewable energy sources to fuel he extraction processes.

At the moment, the cost of gas made from air is too high to allow widespread use. Furthermore, after two months, only five liters of gas have been produced. Until further developments are made, this is a process with potential, but without plausible application. Nonetheless, it adds to the growing number of clean energy development efforts around the world.
