Pure hydrogen is probably one of the cleanest burning fuels. This one sounds more like Gasoline to me which isn't all that clean.

The 2-step cycle consists in thermally reducing non-stoichiometric cerium oxide at above 1,500 °C and re-oxidizing it with H2O and CO2 at below 900 °C
I was thinking if this technology is viable, the oil companies will probably be making the gasoline.

the oil cartels will bury this via patent aquistions, manipulating research grants to the organisations concerned etc.
I cant see them standing by and letting this threaten there profits.
If that's true, then how come the "SMOG TEST" that's required for gasoline cars in California doesn't even state any limits for the CO2 level? CO2 isn't even considered toxic until it reaches concentration levels over 100 times the atmospheric concentration. What they DO have limits for is HC, CO, and NO. The CO is much more toxic than CO2 which really isn't toxic, though if you get too much of any gas besides Oxygen and there's not enough oxygen you can suffocate.

the big problem in burning gasoline, is the production of CarbonDioxid (CO 2)
The exhaust analyzer samples five different gasses simultaneously and you have be under the MAX limit for each of three gasses (HC, CO and NO). The C02 and O2 levels are collected from each vehicle for statistics.
So burning the same gasoline, they were able to lower CO emissions by 99%, by redesigning the fuel delivery system. That's amazing.
The KOHLER low CO gasoline generators, available from 5-15 kW, significantly reduce CO emissions by 99 percent, which both EPA emissions and Kohler reliability tests confirm.
