A fossil fuel technology that doesn't pollute

Credit: Patrik Stollarz/AFP/Getty ImagesAs emerging technologies go, the idea is appealing — the ability to burn fossil fuels in order to generate energy but without emitting planet-warming carbon dioxide. That's the concept behind “chemical looping,” an evolving technology that's being aggressively developed by Ohio State University researchers. In recent years, the technique has earned interest from both government and industry, and new research published this week describes recent advances in making it a viable method for reducing carbon dioxide pollution. In two papers published in the journal Energy & Environmental Science, engineers detail a process by which shale gas can be processed into gasoline and methanol while consuming carbon dioxide that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere. Under certain conditions, the same process can also be used with coal and biomass fuels. Andrew Tong, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at Ohio State, said the p
