Renewable sector advancement: Carbon dioxide (CO2) to fuel

Technological advancements in areas such as renewable sector and solar energy have drastically changed the society. These innovations have equally impacted the reduction in fossil fuel consumption and has improved vehicle to smart mode of transport.

Scientist have developed a sustainable technology that can convert Carbon dioxide to hydrocarbon fuels and other usable materials. The researchers have discovered a metal carbide particle a compound of carbon and metal that can convert CO2 to fuel.

The particles can be produced at an industrial scale at low cost, and with minimal environmental impact, providing a vital pathway towards reducing the world’s greenhouse emission. The process is basically turning the carbon dioxide back to hydrogen bond. Hydrocarbons are basic fuel stock. It can be turned into fuel stock chemicals such as methane and propane and are building blocks of more complex chemicals.

Carbon emissions could be converted into materials to make consumer products such as hydrocarbon and fuels. This process makes it very difficult to control the size of the particle which depends on the catalyst too.

This means that the particles can be produced at temperatures as low as 300 degree Celsius, which made them ideal for converting C02 to hydrocarbons.
