1. Green Feed
With oil supplies around the world fast depleting, researchers have been trying to find an alternative that could sustain the energy needs of mankind. A team at Israel’s Ben Gurion University may have come up with an alternative fuel, made from water and carbon dioxide.
Unlike other fuel alternatives available today, the “green feed” created at BGU has a significant advantage: it can be turned into fuel using existing oil refining methods and delivered to gas stations using existing infrastructure. Professor Moti Hershkowitz, who led the research team, predicts that this breakthrough technology should be commercially viable within 10 years.
