Since plants need carbon dioxide to live, if this technology really works well won’t we potentially be reducing plant growth by reducing CO2 levels?
Nothing like a desert planet. Maybe they can grow Arabs next.
They get them from Dragon’s teeth, i think.
It would appear that the process is ‘carbon neutral’. Any CO2 taken out of the atmosphere to produce the fuel would then be returned to the atmosphere when the fuel is burned. Of course this does not take into account any CO2 produced creating the energy inputs necessary to create the fuel in the first place.
Conservation of Energy rules the day.
No, since burning the fuel will release the CO2 back into the air.
