Pioneering Scientists Turn Fresh Air into Gasoline

Now this may be a lot of hot air, but you never know. A British company claims to have been able to produce gasoline from carbon dioxide and water vapor, taken straight from the air. Through revolutionary technology, the gasoline production process also removes CO2 from the environment, scoring a hit on two fronts.

"We've taken carbon dioxide from air and hydrogen from water and turned these elements into petrol," said Peter Harrison, the company's chief executive, who revealed the breakthrough at a conference at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London.
