Title Chemical utilization of sequestered carbon dioxide as a booster of hydrogen economy
Date 2008-01-01
Description For many, hydrogen in a pure hydrogen economy would be like natural gas in today's energy economy. Unfortunately, hydrogen's physical properties are unsuited to the energy market's requirements in terms of packaging, storage, transfer, and delivery. In this paper, a hybrid energy economy that packages hydrogen chemically on carbon atoms from various sources including recycled carbon dioxide is introduced and discussed. For this new hybrid energy economy to become a sustainable reality, the ability to recycle carbon dioxide and use hydrogen to create an appropriate energy product, such as dimethyl ether (DME), is needed. DME is recognized as a potential next generation, "beyond-petroleum", environmentally benign commodity for energy storage and distribution. It is expected that to maximize the sustainability of the proposed hybrid energy economy, "green" hydrogen will be utilized. The "green" hydrogen would be created by the electrolysis of water powered by renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind or geothermal heat.
