Released CO2 could be repurposed
What could we do with captured CO2 emissions - short science articles

Scientists are very optimistic that in the next 10 years we could affordably capture CO2 from power plants and other emissions and convert it into useful molecules. The technology is still in its infancy but could be used to convert CO2 to hydrogen, methane and ethane as biofuels, ethylene and alcohol as consumer goods and formic acid in the pharmaceutical industry or as fuel in fuel cells. While currently, the electricity required to do so is very high making it very expensive, rapid strides could be made since renewable energy sources will become more available.
