But there is some more information in the press release, including the names of eight cars submitted to the design challenge and the following sentence "They include such design visions as...a vehicle with algae-filled panels that transform harmful CO2 into pure oxygen." Interestingly, in the list of contestants is the "Hummer O2" which, if I am at all familiar with the naming schema at GM, is probably a hummer that emits O2 instead of CO2.
Of course, it doesn't say that 100% of the CO2 is converted and that would probably be an impossible task. But using algae to rapidly convert vehicle exhaust to pure oxygen would certainly be an amazing symbiosis between technology and nature. We're just gonna have to keep our eyes on the LA Auto Show website, and wait with bated breath until December 2nd.
