Nitrogen fertilizers, which have been used to help combat flooding, drought, and wildfires, can now be used to fertilise a house.
But they are expensive and can take months to produce.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is currently researching ways to reduce the need for fertilizers.
It recently released a report that states that it would cost about $3,000 to $4,000 more to make a fertilizer using the technology than a traditional method.
The new method, called bioreactors, will use nanoscale particles that will trap oxygen gas, allowing the plant to absorb the carbon dioxide and oxygen gas.
NREL hopes to have the technology commercially available in 2018.
