Scientists at the National Energy Technology Laboratory devised a way to recycle CO2 into fuel and useful chemicals using tiny particles of gold. The process is groundbreaking, as it consumes more CO2 than it puts out. The researchers think the technology can lead to an effective industrial-scale way to reduce CO2 emissions. http://1.usa.gov/1NS3gtK
