Bosch says synthetic carbon neutral fuels could save the internal combustion engine

A new study from Bosch advocates the use of synthetic fuels as a means of making internal combustion engines carbon neutral and extending their lifespan well into a more environmentally friendly future. According to Bosch, the optimal type of synthetic fuel would be made with hydrogen extracted from water, and carbon captured the air or recycled from industrial sources. Through this process fuels, such as petrol, diesel, natural gas and kerosene, can be made.
