The idea consists on bombarding the molecule with different molecules to cause big energetic collision to break the bond in the molecule.



The answer: It can´t. CO2 will always be 1C and 2Os. Imagine bombarding the CO2 molecule with different elements or molecules, where these ultra fast molecules will cause a huge collision making the bond with the Carbon and Oxygen to break.  It probably can be achieved by making many small  random ultra fast collisions or one big "army" with a lot of energy that will make all the energy between the Carbon and Oxygen to simply dissipate. The best way to achieve this would be sending different molecules via High Quality Tech lasers ( the foton itself can probably be used as well). 
For example, Titanium. can be put on a laser and the fotons will start "pushing" the Ti proton or molecule. This Titanium could intersect right on the middle O-C-O making the carbon go away. This way, there are different scenarios that can happen. Obtaining all 3 elements by themselves, O2, Ti and C. Ti can replace C to obtain TiO2 plus many other things can happen.
Or the laser can just start giving enough heat for the molecule to break apart.


What are the key outcomes and impact of your solution?

If this is accomplished, obtaining different pure elements(depending on the molecule using) can be obtained in a cheaper way. Thus, O2 will most likely be obtained after the high energetic procedure. This will be working almost "light speed" because of the laser.

What actions do you propose to realize your stated goals?

I will use China as an example.
A not so big volume chamber is build underground 10x10x10m (1,000m3). With a vacuum that is sucking air from the city into the chamber, inside the chamber, one section is bombed by lasers, then a fan blows the bombard air though a small filter to obtain the elements which will make only O2 go through the filter. Finally the renaming clean air is sent back to the city.

Who will take these actions?

Private companies can have total control of it by having different auditors, environmentalists and scientists that will constantly be monitoring the amount of pollution intake and the amount of cleaned air delivered to the city. As well as the type of materials found after cleaning the air.
The government plays a big role on facilitating the construction these kind of buildings, as well as big investments to make their operation and construction efficient.

Target geography

India, Beijing, Mexico City, Alaska. Istambul

What do you expect are the costs associated with piloting and implementing the solution, and what is your business model?

The costs could be divided by 3.
The most important cost would be the "molecule" bombarder to detonate the breakdown of the CO2 molecule. This is where capital should be strong to increse investigation and scientific advances about the progress. 
Initial costs would be The big vaccum chamber that would be ingesting all the polluted air. 
The last part of the capital would be spent to control and operate the vaccum cleaner chamber to make it work correctly.


-Get financial resources by investors and crowdfunding.

- Select a "City of Proof" where the firs project will be made.

-Burocracy first, get all permisions and papers to make thigns right with the government.

-Getting people involved in the project as well as scientsts to get involved.

-Initiate the the construction of the chamber( as well as the development of the tech).

-Results and revenue with the material obtained from cleaning

If tech is really really good, small chambers or boxes could be done inside or outside of houses. This way people will be cleaning their own air and they could make some money out of it.
