# Are there any process and catalyst for convert CO2 and H2O into CH4 and O2 [duplicate]

The equation is simple

$$\ce{CO2 + 2 H2O -> CH4 + 2 O2}$$

Yet, is it possible? Are there processes like heat, pressure, electricity, laser and/or any catalyst that could do this process directly?

And if it not possible then why it isn't?
