Abstract

ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to move an energy efficient process for the conversion of carbon dioxide and water into syngas, a key feedstock for the production of synthetic chemicals. BENEFIT: If we are successful we will have a new process to convert air water and sunlight into transportation fuels. That will result in a domestic source of fuels that does not compete with the food supply . It will also be a route to production of fuels at forward bases, allowing substantial reductions in the logistics burden associated with fuel transport.
