[Picture LINK] Navy researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Materials Science and Technology Division, demonstrate proof-of-concept of novel NRL technologies developed for the recovery of carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen (H2) from seawater and conversion to a liquid hydrocarbon fuel.
Here's a short article on the newest development in solving global warming by the US NAVY. You won't believe what you are reading. I am posting this one article now but will be looking around for who, what, when, how, and why of this spectacular development.
It's hydrocarbons from sea water, folks.
– The U.S. Navy Just Announced The End Of Big Oil And No One Noticed: "People have been asking for more details about the process. This is from the Naval Research Laboratory’s official press release:
"Using an innovative and proprietary NRL electrolytic cation exchange module (E-CEM), both dissolved and bound CO2 are removed from seawater at 92 percent efficiency by re-equilibrating carbonate and bicarbonate to CO2 and simultaneously producing H2. The gases are then converted to liquid hydrocarbons by a metal catalyst in a reactor system.""...In plain English, fuel is made from hydrocarbons (hydrogen and carbon). This process pulls both hydrogen and carbon from seawater and recombines them to make fuel. The process can be used on air as well but seawater holds about 140 times more carbon dioxide in it so it’s better suited for carbon collection."
