ABSTRACT An electrochemical acidification cell is developed and tested as a method for extracting large quantities of carbon dioxide from seawater for use as a feedstock for jet-fuel synthesis at sea. The electrolytic regeneration of cation exchange resin was demonstrated, allowing simultaneous and continuous ion exchange and regeneration to occur within the cell along with control of the seawater pH. The CO2 in the seawater was readily removed at pHs of less than 6.0. In addition, the cell produced a portion of the hydrogen needed for jet-fuel synthesis without additional energy penalties. 15.

CO2 Phase Change Demonstrator: Experiment with gas to liquids (CO2 to alcohol) using Nafion and our phase change demonstrator cart (we can ship worldwide)... More Info

CO2 GTL Gas to Liquids Experimental Platform: Experiment with gas to liquids (CO2 to alcohol) using Nafion (electrolyzer membrane) and our phase change demonstrator cart (we can ship worldwide). CO2 goes supercritical at 31 C. This is a experimental platform which you can use to demonstrate phase change with low heat. Includes integration area for small CO2 turbine, static generator, Nafion pellets, Nafion membrate, or Nafion tubes... More Info

Concept: The concept of the SeaMerlin Engine is to convert or supplement existing marine vessel propulsion to a gas leverage turbine which scavenges CO2 from saltwater at the same time it provides vessel thrust.
