Abstract: At present, carbon dioxide is considered the largest contributor among greenhouse gases. This review covers the current state
of problem of carbon dioxide emissions from industrial and combustion processes, the principle of photocatalysis, existing
literature related to photocatalytic CO2 reduction over TiO2 based catalysts and the effects of important parameters on the process performance including light wavelength and intensity,
type of reductant, metal-modified surface, temperature and pressure.
