Are there any fuels that burn without creating emissions?

    Pellet stoves are designed to burn hotter than a standard fireplace, reducing smoke by burning the fuel particles that it is made of, and such have much lower emissions than most burning fuels. However, when things burn, any carbon contained in them becomes carbon dioxide. So any fuel would have to contain no carbon whatsoever and be burned at a sufficiently hot temperature to be completely emission-free. Since all living things contain carbon, and all fuel is ultimately derived from the remains of living things, there is little chance of an emission-free burning fuel becoming commercially viable.
