The process of making liquid fuel is a timely and costly venture, not to mention that it can be extremely detrimental to the environment. It requires many human hours, is extremely dangerous and requires several large tanks, pipes and reactors continuously mixing and intertwining with each other. The magnitude of this process is called scalability. To give you an idea of what this means, 1 cubic meter reactor can create 1 ton of CO2 per day from a medium sized, coal-fired power plant. Under present conditions, several thousands of these operate every day.
Living in a time where immediate changes are necessary to improve our resources for fuels, a major development has surfaced. Carbon Sciences Inc., a company dedicated to converting CO2 emissions into reusable liquid fuels, has taken an unprecedented leap forward in reducing the reaction time between CO2-to-Fuel from hours to minutes. In short, 1 cubic meter can now produce close to 10 tons of CO2 a day at the same plant. So instead of having 3,000 plants operating a day, creating 3,000 tons of CO2, we now can have 300 plants running and creating 3,000 tons of CO2. This huge production increase is found in the process itself.
CEO Byron Elton and CTO Dr. Naveed Aslam both agree that this breakthrough has the potential to completely change how fuel is produced on a global level. The sheer scale of this advancement can effectively generate 30% of the worldsâ€™ liquid fuels. This could not have come at a better time. Carbon Sciences Inc. is now at the forefront of the fuel producing industry and it looks as though they will be for some time.
