CO2 Plus Energy Equals Organic Chemicals

Liquid Light, a New Jersey startup company, claims to be able to turn carbon dioxide into fuels and industrial chemicals. The innovative technology behind the process is simple: Take CO2 and mix it in a water-filled chamber with an electrode and a catalyst. The ensuing chemical reaction converts CO2 into a new organic molecule, methanol, which can be used as a fuel, an industrial solvent or a starting material for the manufacture of other chemicals. What is most promising about this technology is that it maybe way to use Carbon Dioxide that might be otherwise emitted to the air or be sequestered in the ground or ocean
