Using synthetic photosynthesis to combat climate change

In future, greenhouse gas carbon dioxide could be removed from the atmosphere by deploying a new biological method. Scientists have developed a synthetic but completely biological metabolic pathway based on the model of photosynthesis that fixes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere 20% more efficiently that plants can photosynthetically.
