Swiss Researchers Say They Can Produce SAF from Air
Researchers in Switzerland say they have developed technology to produce sustainable aviation fuel using nothing but air and sunlight.
This solar reactor demonstrator on the roof of the machine laboratory at ETH Zurich, uses a sun-​tracking, parabolic reflector to concentrate the sunlight that powers the reaction which eventually turns atmospheric carbon dioxide and water into drop-in hydrocarbon fuels. According to the researchers, the reaction can be tailored to produce specific fuels. (Photo: Alessandro Della Bella/ETH Zurich)
