Researchers from Sandia National Laboratories are creating a prototype of a device that can turn carbon dioxide into a liquid fuel. Lead developer Rich Diver recently tested the Counter-Rotating-Ring Receiver Reactor Recuperator (CR5).

This solar-powered machine is designed to convert carbon dioxide from power plants into fuels like gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. Still in its early stages, more research is needed to boost the efficiency of CR5 and it would take more than a decade to have this technology adequately developed and implemented.
