In a groundbreaking discovery, scientists at the United States Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have successfully developed and demonstrated a revolutionary technology to extract carbon dioxide (CO2) and produce hydrogen (H2) from seawater, subsequently converting the two gasses into hydrocarbon liquid fuel. This fuel can power a jet engine without generating harmful byproducts.
U.S. Naval Reserve Commander Felice DiMascio, one of the inventors, commented:
“A ship’s ability to produce a significant fraction of the battle group’s fuel for operations at sea could reduce the mean time between refueling, and increase the operational flexibility and time on station. Reducing the logistics tail on fuel delivery, with the potential to increase the Navy’s energy security and independence – with minimal impact on the environment – were key factors in the development of this program.”
