CO2 and future cars

although iam not a scientist or anything like that isnt ,, but i read a research that said 45% of co2 production comes from US (cars only) ,, isnt it possible to make a machinery that could covert CO2 to O2 ,, like a plant ,, maybe a solution . or build a Cabinet or something like that to store CO2 and then put it in a CO2 to O2 converting solution and stuff
we already know how plants work cant we make a device that imitates them and doesnt need anything to work just CO2 and Sunlight
a teacher of mine once build something like that its like you put the CO2 in to the tube and the tube is connected to solutions containing algae and stuff like that

    Google catalytic conversion.Its the closest thing we have to minimizing co2 output.
