We’ve recently discovered something which proves we can reduce CO2 to a non-carbonate state, and that it can be done inorganically.
What makes this important? It shows that there are ways to affect electron counts somewhat easily (that is, once you get the tunings and materials correct).
What will it take?
It might be possible with Sodium Carbonate, Sodium, Charcoal (for confinement/ionization) (It needs to be tested.)
A laser, or more likely a natural light source (to cover more spectrum locations)
Some magnifying glasses
Some small spherical pieces
Knowledge of the kelvin water dropper
I am proposing that CO2 can be altered through simply running CO2 up into a kelvin water mechanism. The initial state of CO2 can be altered, or excited at points through the use of an electron probe mechanism used to read radiation levels (geiger counter); where the probe itself is used to enact a path in which electrons follow throughout the process. Along the way, this leads to quantum confinement through small secretion points from air (CO2) to water (CO2 being passed into H2O), with light or laser being directed towards the input, and output points between each process; with sodium or sodium carbonate being used to further ionize, and pull apart the electron counts; in turn changing the state of CO2. This works because there are materials included throughout the process which allow for attachments and change in structure. Each water tank can include spherical pieces used to further contain (through exclusion) both electrons, and adjust the phasing, and strength of direction for light. Where even the charge of the water helps to pull things apart.
This is essentially a form of electron osmosis done through the same mechanisms found in a plant. Light could be further rectified using silver reflectors leading up to the point of entry into the H2O. Sugar may also be something to consider as a material to include.

Light-activated, single-ion catalyst breaks down carbon dioxide:
The catalyst article proves without a doubt that this theory had been correct.
