The processing of oil without harm for the atmosphere

In recent years the increasing distribution receives solar energy. But as we would not like it, the main raw material for obtaining fuel use , refueling aircraft, missiles and other types of transport, as well as for heating houses, generating electricity and so on are hydrocarbons extracted from the earth's interior. Simply put, the oil. And processing not so good for the environment. Huge amounts of greenhouse gases and other substances every day more and more are poisoning our planet. However, scientists have found a way of producing fuel from oil. While it does no harm for the atmosphere.

How to get the fuel of oil

There are several types of producing fuel from oil. First — known to many distillation, which produces several fractions, each of which subsequently goes into making a particular type of fuel. The other is much more interesting: the oil «hidden» huge amount of hydrogen, which, as you know, is the raw material for clean fuel. Because the combustion of hydrogen produces no harmful gases. Only one problem: when the presently known methods of extraction of hydrogen from oil harmful gases are produced in excess, which frustrates «no» all subsequent .

However, a group of canadian researchers claims to have invented the method of producing hydrogen directly from the oil fields without harming the Earth's atmosphere. This researchers said in the recently held in Barcelona Goldschmidt Geochemistry Conference dedicated to the issues of environment and energy. As a rule, all news similar meropriyatiy we cover on our site and Subscribe to be aware of.

Cheap hydrogen from oil fields (without harmful emissions) may be a source of energy for the world. And you do not have to redo existing infrastructure — said Grant Tems, CEO of Proton Technologies, which has developed a new method.

Also Interesting is: in the words of the same Stem Grant, the cost of hydrogen produced with this technology will be about 50 cents per kilo of liquefied gas compared to the current production cost of $ 2 dollars for the same kilogram of hydrogen.

The method is «add» pure oxygen into oil reservoirs underneath the soil. Scientists discovered that the injection of oxygen in oil accumulations increases their temperature, liberating hydrogen, which can be easily filtered from other gases. While drilling rigs to oil production is not required. and abandoned oil fields, or where drilling is uneconomical.

it is possible that such a tower will soon be history, giving way to filtration system gases to hydrogen fuel

There is only one problem: the technology yet tested only in laboratory conditions. And in small areas outside the test polygons. Therefore, the scientific community received it with cautious optimism, calling the method is very promising and saying that you need to wait in order to understand how technology will manifest itself in industrial scale.
