Anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide bring a series of climatic and environmental problems including global warming. Artificially upcycling of carbon dioxide into value-added fuels and chemicals, powered by "green electricity" of renewable energy, provides an elegant route to close the anthropogenic carbon cycle.
An innovative approach could turn nanoparticles into simple reservoirs for storing hydrogen. The highly volatile gas is considered a promising energy carrier for the future, which could provide climate-friendly fuels for airplanes, ships and lorries, for example, as well as allowing climate-friendly steel and cement production – depending on how the hydrogen gas is generated.
