Greyrock,Carbon Engineering
Date: 2018-02-12
Following up on our October 7, 2016 coverage, A new carbon-neutral fuel project that extracts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and converts it into a new transportation fuel is being touted by its developers Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, Sacramento-based Carbon Engineering, and Harvard physicist David Keith, is being developed and tested in Squamich, BC.

The project, which is being funded by Bill Gates, involves the capture of air and technology involving water electrolysis and fuels synthesis to make a liquid, carbon-neutral synthetic fuel.

Carbon Engineering's prototype plant will extract 1 tpd of pure CO2 for a year. The company is working with Greyrock Energy and directly synthesizing CO2 and hydrogen split from water with clean electricity, and a mixture of petrol and diesel, to create a process called Air-to-Fuels (A2F).
