Researchers produced "...a light-harvesting artificial leaf platform"
Researchers have created a device that absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and uses sunlight to break it into a mix of carbon monoxide and hydrogen called synthesis gas or “syngas,” that can be used directly or turned into diesel or other liquid fuels. Yeah. Saw this a couple of years ago. Note that this is not so much a plausible way to put a dent in atmospheric carbon. Fact is, the same solar energy, fed into the grid, would prevent CO2 emissions in the 1st place.

It is a potentially useful item, but more to provide for outposts and military use. Also useful on Mars! Some call it an “artificial leaf,” using a special catalyst - tungsten diselenide - and sunlight. We’ll see. But I rank it as a helpful game changer.
