CO2 recycling article


The corn ethanol folks concerning Liquid Light, who have been cited in Coaltl a number of times, they are the Princeton spinoff commercializing the Bocarsly and Cole CO2 to ethanol & etc tech's developed at Princeton U.  Liquid Light's CO2 to plastics, etc., tech is being presented as a way to maximize the value of biofuel factories, by, as Audi is doing in Europe, capturing the CO2 byproduct of fermentation and then converting it into hydrocarbon products of value. One would presume you could do the same thing, with an admittedly higher degree of difficulty, with the CO2 byproduct of combustion. Again, this is being presented as a way to maximize the value of commercial processes that coproduce CO2. Seems strange that such seeming opportunity for jobs and industries has so little apparent interest.
