Turning CO2 into Ethanol with Nanospikes

By using carbon particles embedded in nano carbon spikes, a complex chemical reaction is triggered when voltage is added that directly converts co2 in water into ethanol at a 63% efficiency.

This is not a technology that will “save the world” at this point, but it is the beginning of a new promising idea and we can’t wait to see where it will end up.
