University of Twente researchers have made significant efficiency improvements to the technology used to generate solar fuels. This involves the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel (in this case, hydrogen). Using only earth-abundant materials, they developed the most efficient conversion method to date. The trick was to decouple the site where […]

Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and the ETH Zurich have collaborated to develop a ground-breaking process for making solar fuel. The new procedure uses the sun’s thermal energy to convert carbon dioxide and water directly into synthetic fuel. The team has unveiled a chemical process that uses the sun’s thermal energy to convert […]
