CO2 is the new gold.
Carbon Recycling is the most interesting thing on the technical horizon.
1st October 2019: I enjoyed a fascinating briefing at the European Energy Forum from leaders at Wärtsilä, where they are developing the process of Carbon Recycling.
Carbon Dioxide CO2 is captured from the air or directly from emissions streams, then can be combined with hydrogen to create carbon-neutral and renewable synthetic fuels, industrial chemicals and construction materials.
In the future, fossil fuels will be replaced by these renewable synthetic fuels.
In the future, this means fossil fuels will be replaced by these renewable synthetic fuels, which actively extract CO2 from the atmosphere. Making building materials from carbon dioxide is the most perfect way to lock it up for ever.
This is the Future.
