Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers combined gold and copper to create hybrid nano-particles that could vastly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Copper is already one of the few metals that can convert CO2 into fuel while requiring little energy, but it has limitations that the scientists circumvented by boosting its conductivity with gold. This new development in nanotechnology could make power plants more efficient and reduce their total greenhouse gas emissions.
