The increasing consumption of non-renewable energy and its contribution to CO<inf>2</inf> emissions raise severe concerns about the subsequent effects on future energy supply and global climate change. Utilizing the abundance of solar energy resources to convert CO<inf>2</inf> into renewable energy is arguably one of the most attractive means by which both problems can be addressed simultaneously. A copper-modified TiO<inf>2</inf>/reduced graphite oxide (RGO) composite was prepared and examined for its ability to reduce CO<inf>2</inf>. The synthesized composite exhibited properties which may provide a significant operational advantage for real world applications, employing CO<inf>2</inf> capture and conversion to useful products. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AWMA's 107th Annual Conference & Exhibition (Long Beach, CA 6/24-27/2014).
