Carbon Sciences, the developer of a breakthrough technology to recycle carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other portable fuels, unveiled a video explaining the inspiration for its proprietary CO2-to-Fuel technology and nano-engineering innovations behind its industrial scale process.
“A video is worth a million words,” said Byron Elton, Carbon Sciences’ CEO. “The potential of our technology has been enthusiastically received since we announced it last year. This video helps people visualize the actual process and demystifies all the discrete innovations within our breakthrough technology.”
The six-minute video, “Carbon Sciences: A Breakthrough Technology to Recycle CO2 into Fuel,” takes viewers on a three-dimensional journey through the microscopic world of microorganisms and their natural biocatalytic method of transforming CO2 into fuel molecules. The video discloses the breakthrough mechanisms that allow Carbon Sciences to mimic Nature on an industrial scale — specifically using the company’s patent-pending Smart Particle Technology. Smart Particles are highly efficient nano-scale CO2 to fuel reactors that incorporate a number of Carbon Sciences’ innovations including: (1) a low energy enzyme-based biocatalytic process, and (2) a proprietary enzyme encapsulation technology that increases the life of key enzymes to reduce the cost of fuel production.
Smart Particles are the key to achieving a fast reaction time and industrial scale-up of the company’s CO2-to-Fuel technology. The design of Smart Particles is inspired by the way single-cell organisms work. A Smart Particle is based on the concept of synthetic biology and functions like a highly efficient artificial cell that contains proprietary enzyme processes to serve a single purpose — to absorb CO2 molecules and excrete fuel molecules.
