Air Fuel Synthesis, a British company, has successfully produced the first technology for producing petroleum from air, with a focus on solving the energy crisis and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The technology works by capturing air and then extracting the CO2 to form petroleum. The goal of the company is to build a large, commercial-scale plant within the next two years. Right now, the process uses conventional energy to function but another main goal of Air Fuel Synthesis is to use 100% power from renewable energy sources.
