The Gas Station of the Future

KAUST researchers are reusing CO2 in combination with green hydrogen to produce e-fuels that can be used for sustainable mobility, redefining CO2 as a valuable material. The conversion of renewable energy to formic acid, and catalysts that can turn CO2 into useful platform chemicals for fuels, such as methanol and syngas, can provide a blueprint for the gas station of the future. Green and blue ammonia are also explored as carbon-free fuels, and together with McLaren, we are exploring e-fuel formulations for Formula 1 cars.
