Chinese scientists synthesize starch from CO2 in global first

Chinese scientists have become the first in the world to develop an artificial method of synthesizing starch from carbon dioxide (CO2). The study, published online in the journal Science on Friday, was conducted by the Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The new approach makes it possible to alter starch production from traditional agricultural planting to industrial manufacturing, and opens up a new technical route for synthesizing complex molecules from CO2, according to experts.
