US Navy's ability to make fuel from seawater a 'game-changer'
LARRY CLIFTON digitaljournal.com Washington - Monday, US experts and Navy brass jointly announced a "game-changer" process that extracts carbon dioxide and hydrogen gas from seawater to produce liquid hydrocarbon fuel to power ships and jet aircraft. The technology means that within 10 years U.S. Navy ships will be able to make their own fuel from seawater thereby doing away with the fuel supply chain and allowing ships to cross oceans and return to ports without need of refueling, according to an AFP report. Currently Navy ships depend on a fleet of 15 military oil tankers and land-based fuel depots which means commanders must abandon their missions for hours while refueling. With the exception of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines, navy vessels must sidle up to tankers while underway, often in very bad weather. "It's a huge milestone for us," says Vice Adm. Philip Cullom. The development of a liquid hydrocarbon fuel is being hailed as "a game-changer" because it would significantly shorten the supply chain, a weak link that makes any force easier to attack, according to Cullom. to read more: digitaljournal.com
