United States Patent: 8461215

Totally ignored by all the public hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth concerning President Obama's recent climate change saber-rattling is the fact, that, given technologies like that disclosed in our report of:

West Virginia Coal Association | CO2 & More Liquid Fuel from Thin Air | Research & Development; concerning: "United States Patent 7,459,590 - Method for Producing ... Derived Synthetic Hydrocarbons from ... Air; 2008; Inventor: George Olah, et. al.; Assignee: University of Southern California; Abstract: A method for producing methanol and dimethyl ether using the air as the sole source of materials is disclosed. The invention relates to a method for producing methanol by removing water from atmospheric air, obtaining hydrogen from the removed water, obtaining carbon dioxide from atmospheric air; and converting the carbon dioxide under conditions sufficient to produce methanol. Thereafter, the methanol can be dehydrated to produce dimethyl ether or further processed to produce synthetic hydrocarbons, polymers, and products derived from them";

United States Patent: 8440438

Since our most recent post, as accessible via:

West Virginia Coal Association | Penn State Hosts 2013 International CO2 Utilization Conference | Research & Development,

concerns the:

"12th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization, ICCDU XII, June 23-27, 2013; Alexandria, VA, USA";

United States Patent: 8198338

Over the past several years, we've documented for you a number of times the flat reality that, not only can Carbon Dioxide be reclaimed and, on a practical basis, be chemically recycled in the industrial synthesis of hydrocarbons, it is, as seen most recently in our report of:

West Virginia Coal Association | Sweden Makes Public Report of CO2 to Motor Fuel Recycling | Research & Development; concerning the European newspaper article:


Starting today, June 23, 2013, experts from around the world that have gathered in and near the capitol of our nation will participate in the:

"12th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization, ICCDU XII, June 23-27, 2013; Alexandria, VA, USA";

an event that is in this case being hosted, basically in Washington, DC, by the Pennsylvania State University. As they put it:

"Organized by EMS Energy Institute & Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment, The Pennsylvania State University".



As we've reported a couple of times, as, for one example, in:

West Virginia Coal Association | 1936 Ceramics "New Market" for Coal Ash | Research & Development; concerning: "United States Patent 2,055,706 - Method of Making Ceramic Products; 1936; Chicago District Electric Generating Corporation; Description: This invention relates to an improved method of making fired ceramic bodies by the addition thereto in the unfired state of fly ash resulting from the combustion of pulverized fuel, and the improved product resulting from the use of such method";
