Researchers at Sandia National Laboratory say they can take carbon dioxide and sunlight out of the atmosphere and turn it into fuel. The CO2 recycling technique, Sunlight to Petrol project, essentially reverses the combustion process to recover the building blocks of hydrocarbons.

The researchers say the technology already works, but a large-scale deployment could be a decade ore more away. They hope to have a prototype available by April.
