In a Groundbreaking Party Piece, Engineers Turn Water into Carbon-Neutral Jet Fuel Using Solar Radiation

A carbon-neutral synthesis of kerosene, or jet fuel, has been produced by scientists, made by combining sunlight with water. 5% of human emissions are generated through kerosene use in aviation, which currently has no alternative for long haul jetting. It consists of 169 sun-tracking reflective panels that redirect and concentrate solar radiation into a solar […]
