Everyone is aware about the uses of carbon dioxide for the plants to produce oxygen for living life. In general carbon dioxide is present in the atmosphere at a high concentration i.e. approximately 385 ppm. Other than playing a role in photosynthesis and respiration is there any other very useful requirement of carbon dioxide?
The answer is YES.
New system is developed by MIT researchers which can be used to covert power plant emission of carbon dioxide into useful fuels for cars, trucks and planes, and also as a chemical feed stock for a wide range of products. In the process of the system carbon dioxide is migrated through member leaving behind carbon monoxide. This carbon monoxide is later combined with hydrogen and/or water to make different other hydrocarbon fuels and chemicals like methanol, syngas and so on.
To know such innovative ideas be a part of “9th Annual Congress and Expo on Biofuels and Bioenergy” to be held in Dubai, UAE on April 16-17, 2018.
