Wow! This could be huge news. Researchers at Oak Ridge National Labs accidentally found a very doable way to create ethanol from CO2 which has tremendous possible applications. Real and efficient carbon capture is on the table here!
The researchers were attempting to find a series of chemical reactions that could turn CO2 into a useful fuel, when they realized the first step in their process managed to do it all by itself. The reaction turns CO2 into ethanol, which could in turn be used to power generators and vehicles.
Wow! Have to follow this one.
