These Oxford Scientists Just Created Carbon-Neutral Jet Fuel From CO2

David Vetter on Forbes reports that scientists at the University of Oxford have developed carbon-neutral jet fuel from CO2.

  • Finding a way to make carbon-neutral jet fuel at an affordable cost is essential as airplanes are massive emitters of carbon.

“A team of researchers at the University of Oxford have revealed what they say is a cost-effective and efficient way of producing jet fuel from carbon dioxide, offering hope that one day vacationers might be able to jet off abroad without the cost—and associated guilt—of a hefty carbon footprint.”
