Abstract
ABSTRACT: This proposal attepts to develop a new high efficiency process for conversion of carbon dioxide and water to syngas, as a first step in production of synthetic fuels. We have already demonstrated the conversion of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide at over 80% energy efficiency. The objective of the proposed work is to extend the process so that we can also produce syngas. BENEFIT: If this project is successful, we will have developed a new process to convert air water and sunlight into transportation fuels. That will result in a domestic source of fuels that does not compete with the food supply.
