Independent: Crystal invented that can turn thin air into fuel and fight global warming

„A “spongy” crystal that can turn thin air into fuel by extracting carbon dioxide has been developed by scientists. The researcher said the light-activated material was a “critical step” towards making a high-value fuel while at the same time reducing the amount of the greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. It works by turning carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, which can be turned into a useful source of energy.“
