The article highlights the study conducted by the Strathclyde University scientists on the feasibility of converting CO2 into a fuel by mimicking the photosynthetic system of green plants in Great Britain. The author stated that the basic component of the emission-reducing artificial photosynthesis technique will be an aerogel. He added that the main objective of the project is to produce something that is scalable and useful for industry.
