Oven Rust May Offer A New Source Of Fuel
Scientists are discovering the seemingly endless fuel potentials of a by-product of normal oven use.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology are investigating whether the rust that accumulates in your oven can become a source of cheap fuel. The by-product in discussion is an oxide known as ceria, that occurs in self-cleaning ovens as they are heated. With heat, followed by its cooling down, ceria strips oxygen from water and carbon dioxide, leaving hydrogen and carbon monoxide; two elements that can be combined to make fuel.
