A real, sustainable alternative to fossil fuels
Air Fuel Synthesis is pioneering revolutionary renewable fuels to provide secure, stable, and sustainable alternatives to global uncertainty about the future of fossil fuels and fossil oil based products.
Air Fuel Synthesis uses renewable energy to do what nature does with photosynthesis and time, converting carbon dioxide into oil. Put simply, Air Fuel Synthesis converts carbon dioxide and water into synthetic hydrocarbon liquids from which sustainable fuels or other oil based products can be made.
AFS fuels provide a proven solution for sustainable transport fuels of all types, ultimately up to and including renewable aviation fuel - a fuel that is particularly difficult to obtain from other non-fossil sources.
AFS ‘Sustainable fuels’ concept overview
Oil is basically made from carbon and hydrogen. Carbon is in the air in the form of carbon dioxide and hydrogen can be found in water.
Air Fuel Synthesis is the process of turning carbon dioxide and hydrogen in water into a sustainable fuel.
AFS is integrating a range of technologies that allow carbon neutral, sustainable fuel to enter the transport fuel market, thus significantly reducing the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere associated with the burning of fossil fuels.
Air Fuel Synthesis is developing sustainable fuel operational expertise through its high-tech demonstrator facility. This facility produces a range of renewable fuels as a precursor to commercial scale applications and projects, of which one of the major sectors targeted includes high performance motorsport fuels.

Rushlight Awards 2012/13
The team at Air Fuel Synthesis believe there is a strong case, based on energy security and ambitious carbon reduction targets, to develop a drop in, near carbon neutral, aviation fuel using low carbon electricity, hydrogen, and atmospheric carbon dioxide.Read more...
