Two of the top energy priorities in the world today are find environmentally friendly alternatives to fossil fuels and eliminate or reduce man-made carbon dioxide emissions. Syngas Generation from Co-electrolysis (Syntrolysis) is a process developed at the Idaho National Laboratory that addresses both priorities - consuming carbon dioxide while creating synthesis gas - a combination of hydrogen and carbon monoxide used to produce synthetic fuels. Using a well known technology developed in the 1920's, syngas can be converted into a wide variety of hydrocarbon fuels and products like natural gas, diesel, jet fuel, gasoline, lubricants and plastics.
