Data on fuel research reported by researchers at Navy
September 25th, 2009
"The hydrogenation of CO2 using a traditional Fischer-Tropsch Co-Pt/Al2O3 catalyst for the production of valuable hydrocarbon materials is investigated. The ability to direct product distribution was measured as a function of different feed gas ratios of H-2 and CO2 (3:1, 2:1, and 1:1) as well as operating pressures (ranging from 450 to 150 psig)," scientists in the United States report.
"As the feed gas ratio was changed from 3:1 to 2:1 and 1:1, the production distribution shifted from methane toward higher chain hydrocarbons. This change in feed gas ratio is believed to lower the methanation ability of Co in favor of chain growth, with possibly two different active sites...
