Sorcar, S.; et al. (2019): CO 2, water, and sunlight to hydrocarbon fuels: a sustained sunlight to fuel (Joule-to-Joule) photoconversion efficiency of 1%

Sorcar, S.; Hwang, Y.; Lee, J.; Kim, H.; Grimes, K.; Grimes, C. et al. (2019): CO 2, water, and sunlight to hydrocarbon fuels: a sustained sunlight to fuel (Joule-to-Joule) photoconversion efficiency of 1%. In: Energy Environ. Sci. 3, S. 664. DOI: 10.1039/C9EE00734B.

"If we wish to sustain our terrestrial ecosphere as we know it, then reducing the concentration of atmospheric CO2 is of critical importance. An ideal pathway for achieving this would be the use of sunlight to recycle CO2, in combination with water, into hydrocarbon fuels compatible with our current energy infrastructure."

Forbes: Can We Arrest Global Warming By Yanking CO2 From The Atmosphere?

"When the National Climate Assessment was released late last year, it said that the risk of catastrophic climate change was such that new tools had to be created to literally yank CO2 from atmosphere — to sequester it from ambient air. But what is being done to achieve this and is this technology feasible?"
