Gas to Alcohol Conversion

A dramatic science discovery once again has the potential to change our world.

A BYU chemistry research project has developed an effective method for converting natural gas into alcohol, discussed in a Deseret News article.

Liquid alcohol is more stable than natural gas and will be practical to store and transport using existing methods for the gasoline and petroleum supply.

Natural gas production in the US is currently in a growth phase.  It has the potential to eliminate the US dependency on foreign oil imports.
