Carbon capture: New technique developed to turn carbon dioxide waste into fuel

Scientists working for the US Department of Energy have found an efficient way to turn waste carbon dioxide into fuel.

Carbon dioxide is released by the burning of fossil fuels, and is a major contributor to global warming.

Carbon capture and storage is the process of collecting waste carbon dioxide from fossil fuel power plants and storing it in a way that prevents it from entering the atmosphere.

The process has been touted as a means of reducing fossil fuel’s contribution to global warming.
