NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) European researchers have overcome one of the first barriers standing in the way of being able to produce jet fuel from nothing more than sunlight, water and the carbon dioxide found in air.

The successful trial was conducted by researchers from oil company Royal Dutch Shell, the German think-tank Bauhaus Luftfahrt and the EU-backed Solar-Jet project.

“This technology means we might one day produce cleaner and plentiful fuel for planes, cars and other forms of transport,” said Maire Geoghegan-Quinn, European commissioner for research, innovation and science. “This could greatly increase energy security and turn one of the main greenhouse gases responsible for global warming into a useful resource.” Continue reading
