Air Fuel Synthesis at the 2011 IMechE Summit
Tuesday, 15 November 2011 14:25
AFS’s Peter Harrison was recently asked to present at the IMechE summit, considered to represent the top players in the field of air capture. The summits’ objective was to consider technical issues such as scale of deployment, roll-out challenges, and resources. Present at the event were around 50 invited guests from a range of organisations, such as DECC, DFT, FCO, Royal Society, Lotus cars, and Virgin.
Peter Harrison at the event explained “The term "air fuel synthesis" is generally adopted to describe the generic process of converting co2 into fuels” AFS was included along with three other technology providers to make a presentation about the AFS process and the use of CO2 capture.
AFS were able to network at the event with policy makers, universities, and members of the air capture supply chain
Richard Darton of Oxford university Summarised the presentations and provided constructive criticism, of which the following points were mentioned:
· It was accepted that the term biofuels would be better replaced by synthetic fuels otherwise policy development could become restricted.
· It was generally felt that air capture of co2 is more applicable lower down the priority list and after ccs from power stations
It was a pleasure to be accepted as one of the top companies associated with air capture, and to present at the IMechE was an important step for Air Fuel Synthesis in our mission to create a renewable fuel cycle for transport that will be carbon-neutral, produced using renewable energy in order to safeguard the planet when fossil fuels are no longer viable.

The team at Air Fuel Synthesis believe there is a strong case, based on energy security and ambitious carbon reduction targets, to develop a drop in, near carbon neutral, aviation fuel using low carbon electricity, hydrogen, and atmospheric carbon dioxide.Read more...
