Carbon-neutral Kerosene Made from Water Could Stop ‘Shame of Flying’

Ironically, the solution to the so-called "shame of flying" may depend on a modernized version of a synthetic aviation fuel perfected by Adolf Hitler's Luftwaffe air force.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - German scientists and business leaders are developing a project to create what they hope will be the first viable market for a carbon-neutral version of the kerosene that already fuels the most modern aircraft.

The science is still based on chemical reactions which were pioneered in Germany in 1925, but instead of converting coal and other fossil fuels, as the oil-hungry Nazis did during World War II, green kerosene is derived from water and extracts carbon dioxide from the air during the process.

This requires large amounts of electricity generated from renewable resources to . . .
