Solar Energy for Carbon-Free Liquid Fuel

Project description

Bringing liquid solar fuels closer to commercialisation

While the concept of using solar energy to drive chemical reactions that make fuels has been around for decades, the technology still has some way to go before it can be cost-efficient and scalable for industrial applications. The EU-funded Sun-To-X project will firstly use solar energy and ambient humidity to produce hydrogen. Then, using concentrated solar energy, the hydrogen will be reacted to form a non-toxic, energy-dense liquid fuel called Hydrosil for direct use in the transport and energy sectors, with water as the only emission. Its breakthrough innovation has the potential to remove many barriers hindering the deployment of zero emission liquid fuels.
