Biological CO2 fixation is an important technology that can assist in combating climate change. Here, we show an approach called anaerobic, non-photosynthetic mixotrophy can result in net CO2 fixation when using a reduced feedstock. This approach uses microbes called acetogens that are capable of concurrent utilization of both organic and inorganic… CONTINUE READING
