Environmental problems and unstable oil prices are forcing scientists to experiment with various sources of renewable energy.

In Switzerland, began to extract kerosene from the air
 
Engineers of the Swiss Higher Technical School of Zurich have proposed an unusual method of extracting hydrocarbon fuels from the air using solar energy.
They created an installation that extracts water and carbon dioxide from the air, which then decomposes using solar energy, according to 24gadget.
As a result, an artificial gas consisting of hydrogen and carbon monoxide is obtained at the outlet. The resulting mixture is then used to produce hydrocarbon fuels, including aviation kerosene.
The experimental facility is already operating in Switzerland, and even in the mid-European climate it can produce up to 100 ml of kerosene per day.
The chemical process uses high temperature, which is achieved by solar energy. Such conditions allow to achieve high speed and efficiency of the reaction. As a result, the experimental facility produces about 100 ml of fuel.
The next stage of the project will be the creation of a large solar-powered power plant, the construction of which has already begun near Madrid.
The main goal of the developers is to create a cost-effective hydrocarbon fuel generator capable of producing kerosene on an industrial scale.
According to experts, the use of technology at a solar station of 1 square km will allow producing up to 20 thousand liters of kerosene per day.
Placing a solar generator on an area of about one-third of the area of the Mojave Desert, which is just over 11 thousand square km, you can completely abandon oil production for aviation needs.
Reducing the cost of solar and wind energy to a level 2-3 times lower than the price of hydrocarbon energy, now opens the way for the development of production of hydrogen fuel.
