Joule Biotechnologies produce usable fuel directly from atmospheric CO2
Joule Technologieshas announced a breakthrough in fuel generation from carbon dioxidepresent in the air. The technology is based on highly engineeredphotosynthetic microbes that thrive of sunlight and CO2 and in returngenerate hydrocarbon fuel of different types.
Thetype of fuel produced depends on the kind of organism used, where theend result ranges from ethanol to diesel. The process doesn’t produceany biomass and doesn’t require agricultural feedstock. Anotherpositive of the process is that it doesn’t need a supply of fresh waterand the fuel produced could be used directly without extraction orrefinement.
