Fuels from Air – An OverView
FUELS FROM AIR LTD, is the specialist “Fuels from Air” company, focusing on the use of renewable energy to add value to non fossil based carbon dioxide. Whilst other companies consider the sequestration of fossil CO2 into storage our solution avoids the use of fossil fuels and creates carbon neutral fuel loops.
The FFA ethos is very much about sustainability, setting our sights on taking nothing from the Earth and returning nothing to it.
And for the investor to make a commercial return and to make a very positive global contribution by ensuring there is a continued supply of oil based products once availability of fossil oil becomes a serious problem. In the shorter term, climate change and the recent Paris agreement have made carbon neutral fuel increasingly relevant and indeed essential in allowing us to continue to run our transportation worldwide.
FFA has a small team of first class chemical engineers, scientists, and business managers with proven commercial expertise. The company operates from central location at Loughborough, Leicestershire with the pilot facility at West Beacon Farm
The Fuels From Air ltd business and strategy is currently focused on continuing to operate our 5 litre per day demonstration unit and developing a business plan which will help the company implement its concept world wide. The business is currently equity funded and and has constructed the pilot plant, and now seeks further investment from additional like minded champions of the long term vision of a technology that can replace oil and support a sustainable world. To the end, we are very pleased to announce a partnership with Arizona University, a move that will allow both increased production and promotion of FFA fuel.
Fuels From Air – The Process

The FFA system uses renewable energy to capture carbon dioxide and water from the air, electrolyses the water to make hydrogen and reacts the carbon dioxide and hydrogen together to make hydrocarbon fuels.
The FFA process is driven by renewable electricity and the overall process of carbon dioxide capture, fuel production and fuel combustion will be carbon neutral.
What is more, all the components of the FFA system already exist either as demonstration models or are available off the shelf. Although the company is talking to many technology developers about opportunities to create IPR and know-how.
But the best news, as far as renewable energy enthusiasts are concerned is that the manufacture of FFA fuels is unrestricted by price of raw materials, geo or local politics, and is unaffected by issues of land use or food availability.
FFA needs to develop relations with technology partners and financiers to establish large scale supply capabilities to support uptake of the FFA approach.
