Description: This video introduces the technology, which Idaho National Laboratory researchers have invented, called Syntrolysis and which simultaneously electrolizes water and carbon-dioxide into Syngas. INL's Syngas generation from co-electrolysis uses high-temperature nuclear reactor technology and solid-oxide fuel cell technology to recycle carbon dioxide and water into Syngas, the feedstock for synthetic hydrocarbon fuel production. Unlike current fuel-producing processes, Syntrolysis uses carbon dioxide from a variety of sources, including: coal-burning power plant exhaust, biomass, and agricultural waste. From Syngas, synthetically derived hydrocarbon fuels and products can be made.
