Solar-powered reactor converts CO₂ and water into jet fuel

03 Aug 2022 5:51 PM | Youwen Xu (Administrator)

A pilot-scale solar fuel reactor outside Madrid can produce jet fuel from two simple ingredients: carbon dioxide and water (Joule 2022, DOI: 10.1016/j.joule.2022.06.012). Kerosene made with this process, which is powered by heat from a solar concentrator, could serve as a drop-in replacement for fossil fuels.
