Carbon Dioxide Desalination

Carbon Dioxide Desalination

Imagine a scenario where CO2 greenhouse gas emissions could be used to desalinate briny water. This would be a creative way of killing two birds with one stone, namely helping to ameliorate global-warming-induced climate change and producing high quality water for agriculture and drinking purposes.

Increasing the Supply of Renewable Electricity Creates Potential Energy Storage Applications for Synthetic Fuels Aggressive CO2 reduction targets are stimulating the conversion of fossil-fuel-powered electricity systems into renewable low-carbon systems. This energy...

Hydrogen Storage in Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers

Hydrogen Storage in Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers

The intermittent nature of renewable wind and solar energy arising from fluctuations in weather conditions requires the development of efficient and cost-effective large-scale energy-storage systems to create a steady supply of electrical energy for most applications.

A Case for CO2-Sourced Sustainable Synthetic Fuels

A Case for CO2-Sourced Sustainable Synthetic Fuels

Is the electrification of the global fleet of automobiles and trucks truly a panacea for curbing greenhouse gas emissions, stabilizing global warming and ameliorating climate change or, rather, is it merely a way of shifting the problem from conventional internal combustion to electric vehicles?
