Abstract:

A synthetic fuel process that combines carbon dioxide CO2 and hydrogen H2 to make drop-in replacement jet fuel when and where it is needed to support persistent and sustainable Navy and joint forces mission and warfighting capabilities is envisioned. Before such a process can become feasible, however, highly selective catalytic materials must be developed to convert CO2 to energetic molecules to be used as fuel. This 6.1 NRL New Start Program provided CORE funding to help researchers maintain a level of support needed to develop chemistries and new materials in the quest to use environmental CO2 as a carbon source for synthetic fuel production.
