NewCO2Fuels Ltd., an Israeli producer of systems that convert carbon dioxide emissions into synthetic gas, is seeking to close a Series B round to build a commercial-scale plant to further test its technology.
GEEKTIME: 32k tons of CO2 is produced every minute. NewCO2Fuels says it can turn that into cheaper fuelJun. 16, 2014
The Israeli company recently completed testing of its technology that takes CO2, heat and water and turns it into fuel. It said its fuel will be cheaper than what you pump at the gas station.
ECOSUMMIT AWARD 2014 : NewCO2 Fuels is one of the Ecosummit Award 2014 Nominees that will be judged by our expert jury.Jun. 3, 2014
We are proud to present the Ecosummit Award 2014 Nominees that will be judged by our expert jury. The 3 winners will be presented at ECO14 Berlin on Tuesday, 3 June 2014.
Greenearth Energy Ltd (“Greenearth”) (ASX:GER) is pleased to announce that its investee company, NewCO2Fuels Ltd (Israel) (“NCF”) has advised that it has successfully completed trials to dissociate CO2 into CO and oxygen, where the heat required for the process is generated by concentrated solar radiation.
NewCO2Fuels reports two key paths to commercialisation: MOU signed with one of the world's largest steel manufacturers to explore the opportunity to utilise excess heat from the steel industry to produce fuel and establishes collaboration agreement with Europe-based global conglomerate to partner on product development
“New CO2 Fuels is one of the most interesting Israeli companies active in Israel’s fuel alternatives arena. In the last Cleantech Forum event which took place recently in San Francisco, which we attended with a delegation of 14 Israeli companies, NCF raised a lot of interest on the part of investors.”
THE JERUSALEM POST: Israeli startup aims to harness excess industrial heat to transform CO2, water into fuelApr. 29, 2014
The Rehovot-based NewCO2Fuels (NCF) plans to use the extreme heat released by factories such as steel, ceramics, glass and gasification plants – where residual heat temperatures rise to 1,450°C – to drive an innovative fuel production process, the company’s CEO, David Banitt, told The Jerusalem Post this week.
ASX ANNOUNCEMENT : Greenearth has reached an agreement to restructure its position and increase its investment to 33 per cent of NewCO2FuelsApr. 29, 2014
Greenearth Energy Ltd, the strengthened ownership position comes at an exciting time for NCF and its investors (including Greenearth), as it progresses through technical feasibility demonstration towards commercialisation of its ground-breaking CO2-to-fuel conversion technology.
• NCF stage 2 testing further proves technology, increasing dissociation rate of CO2 to 800 times original laboratory tests, a fourfold increase from Stage 1 testing announced in January • NCF continuous tests now running for over 100hrs, proving technology stability • NCF currently converting ~15kg CO2 into ~10kg of CO and 5kg oxygen (O2) per day

Interview of NewCO2Fuels on the Austrian National Channel ORF
Israel based New CO2 Fuels (NCF) has announced successful completion of Stage 1 Proof of Concept testing for high-temperature dissociation of carbon dioxide (CO2; as contained in industrial emissions) into carbon monoxide (CO) and oxygen.
Since NewCO2Fuels has just completed the first phase of tests for the new system, now is a good time to check in and see how they’re doing.
Start-up NewCO2fuel, one of over a dozen being promoted in the government initiative, is developing a technique to turn the common greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into a useful fuel gas mixture called syngas. Among other things, syngas can be made into methanol. Their chemical reactor receives sunlight reflected by a large mirror that is concentrated at a temperature of 1,000 degrees Celsius (1,830 F). That is hot enough to create syngas. The two-year-old energy firm, half owned by Australia's Greenearth Energy and Erdi Fuels, plans to sell systems that would be built beside factories or power stations to collect carbon dioxide emissions and turn them into fuel. CEO David Banitt said the company plans to begin in two years a $50 million pilot in Australia. The technology, he said, will be commercial in about four years.
Israel’s solar energy pioneer Prof. Jacob Karni isn’t a threat to Australia’s coal-burning industry. His aim, with the financial backing of an Australian firm, is simply to make the coal-burning industry less polluting by using energy collected from the sun.
A new Israeli solar technology is able to transform greenhouse gas emissions from the dirtiest of pollutants into a useable fuel for automobiles.
