The change to a green economy in the near future is inevitable as we have reached a critical point in climate changes.
Researchers from Australia have put in place a way of changing bad carbon dioxides into fuel and plastic, much like recycling, we would use carbon dioxides waste and turn it into materials we need. In the process, it would reduce greenhouse gases, which is great for our planet.
To do this, the scientists oxidize zinc at high temperature, which creates nanoparticles, that help turn carbon dioxide into "syngas". Furthermore, the method employed is less expensive and suits the heavy industry better than what we already have. If it can be produce on a large scale, this method could turn excess carbon dioxide from power plant or mines into useful materials.
Although, there is still much work to do, this new way of converting carbon dioxide is a step in the right direction into a greener and more Earth-friendly economy.
