Cleaner fuel for less cost? Triad university researchers think so

Researchers at Wake Forest University have found a more efficient way to turn carbon dioxide emitted in the manufacturing process into synthetic fuel.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Newly-published research out of the chemistry department at Wake Forest University could bode well for manufacturing as well as the environment. 

Building upon existing processes, researchers have found a way to turn waste into fuel by mimicking in the manufacturing process what trees do in nature.

In short, carbon dioxide emitted in the manufacturing process is already converted into fuel. This research makes the process more efficient.
