Scientific breakthrough: carbon dioxide and water can be converted into liquid hydrocarbon fuels

Researches from University of Texas have proven that concentrated light, heat and high pressures can be used to drive this type of reaction.The process is simple, inexpensive and environmentally clean - a byproduct of the reaction is oxygen.
Concentrated light powers the photochemical reactions, which enables the synthesis of hydrocarbons in a one-step process. The invention is also important from climate protection perspective because it allows to pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to produce liquid hydrocarbon fuels. Read more at
