Hello Earthlings! This week we delve into the transformative potential of e-fuels in achieving a carbon-neutral future. Our guest, Tim Boeltken from Ineratec, discusses how synthesizing fuels from green hydrogen and captured CO2 can leverage existing infrastructure and vehicles, providing a practical path away from fossil fuels without waiting for newer technologies to mature.

Explore how e-fuels, produced through innovative modular chemical plants, offer a scalable solution that could democratize energy globally. 

Restoring Our Faith in Humanity this week are the efforts of Kate Hanley and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in rejuvenating the Dove Stone reservoir's peat bogs.
