Caltech Reactor a Breakthrough for Sustainable Business | CleanTechies Blog – CleanTechies.com


According to an�article�in the peer-reviewed journal Science, experiments spearheaded by Professor Sossina Haile of Caltech have succeeded in combining carbon dioxide and water to produce a liquid fuel. The catalyst that facilitates the reaction is the element cerium, and the extremely high temperatures at which the reaction occurs are created by concentrating solar energy. In other words researchers have found a way to do something vaguely similar to what plants do every day: harness the energy of sunlight to convert carbon and water into a liquid fuel.
