Scientists of the Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh are working on photo-catalytic reduction technology which would recycle carbon dioxide emissions from power plants into liquid and gaseous fuels for the domestic and transport sectors.
working to generate ethanol, methanol and methane from emissions of power plants. The team is working on the next generation photo-catalytic reduction process that will yield higher quantity of fuels compared to the technology available at present.
The fuel products could be used for district heating in the domestic sector as well as transport fuels for aircrafts.
The technology of recycling emissions from energy-intensive industries could give birth to the next-generation of carbon mitigation across the developed world as well as developing countries.
