A City University of Hong Kong research team recently developed a stable artificial photocatalytic system that is more efficient than natural photosynthesis. The new system mimics a natural chloroplast to convert carbon dioxide in water into methane, a valuable fuel, very efficiently using light. This promising discovery could contribute to the goal of carbon neutrality. […]

University of Cambridge researchers have developed a solar-powered technology that converts carbon dioxide and water into liquid fuels that can be added directly to a car’s engine as drop-in fuel. The researchers report on the new technology in Nature Energy. The researchers harnessed the power of photosynthesis to convert CO2, water and sunlight into multicarbon […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Cambridge researchers have demonstrated how carbon dioxide can be captured from industrial processes – or even directly from the air – and transformed into clean, sustainable fuels using just the energy from the Sun. The report describing the research has been published in the journal Joule. The research team developed a solar-powered […]

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) researchers have built a pilot-scale solar reactor that produces usable heat and oxygen, in addition to generating hydrogen with unprecedented efficiency for its size. A parabolic dish on the EPFL campus is easily overlooked, resembling a satellite dish or other telecommunications infrastructure. But this dish is special, because it […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Technical University of Munich (TUM) researchers use artificial photosynthesis that may produce syngas (synthetic gas) for the large-scale chemical industry and be able to charge batteries. Plants use photosynthesis to harvest energy from sunlight. Now researchers have applied this principle as artificial photosynthesis for the basis for developing new sustainable processes. The paper describing […]
