Based on photosynthetis – now there's a green solution :)

"...aims to develop a cost effective device of 10mm X 10mm in size within three years."

I don't know much about the timescales for such projects but this seems like a long time considering the potential value. It would be nice if the money that's being wasted on carbon capture and storage were invested in this type of work instead.
