Navy Process to Make Fuel from Seawater

Researchers at the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) announced that they have successfully tested a process to convert seawater into jet fuel. They can extract CO2 both dissolved and bound from the water as a source of carbon, and can extract H2 through electrolysis. They then convert the CO2 and hydrogen into long chain hydrocarbons: [...]

The Midas Touch: US Navy Researchers Convert Seawater into Fuel

Researchers at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) say they have developed technology to extract carbon dioxide from seawater while simultaneously producing hydrogen,

U.S. Navy Converts Seawater into Jet Fuel Using ‘Game Changing’ Technology

United States Navy scientists claim they have successfully developed a method of converting seawater into jet fuel. Researchers at the Naval Research Laboratory developed a technology that extracts carbon dioxide and hydrogen from seawater and then converts

Navy powers model plane using fuel made from sea water
