Transcript for Navy Converts Sea Water Into Mini-Plane Fuel
-- Trapping carbon dioxide producing hydrogen from sea -- is part of a larger project. Create liquid hydrocarbon fuel. In January 2011 and -- -- just commission the carbon capture skid materials center for careers in science and engineering facility. Think US -- This carbon captors did in the facility enables scientists to demonstrate the concept of feasibility of capturing large quantities of carbon dioxide. And produce hydrogen gas using -- from the Gulf of Mexico. These conditions allowed general scientist to obtain key technological information that will be used to optimizing process and create a future prototype model. It's a laboratory scale. In Washington DC and oil has developed a two step process to convert carbon dioxide and hydrogen to liquid hydrocarbons. And march 2013 -- scientists use the fuel produced from this process to successfully power and internal combustion engine for the on September 2013. This fuel successfully. From PRC model aircraft plus. Federal scientists -- -- upscaling to a commercial channel reactor. To increase fuel output and obtain technical information that will be used for future skill and design. This technology is also being explored to provide carbon dioxide. Just on fuel related projects such as bedrooms and sea border problem.
