CO2 + H2O -> fuel + O2 UPDATE

In an older post, one year ago, I found a new about "the best way to avoid Climate Change":
convert the CO2 in fuel...
the problem was the source of energy...
and the solution was ¿nuclear energy?

Well, this blog is to talk about supercritical fluids, and some researches are being done that connect both subjects.

Photocatalytic preferential reduction of CO2 to methane can be performed by means of photoactalytic systems. The way of catalyst are made produces important differences and their synthesis in supercritical fluid can give interesting properties.
