Here's Today's Feel-Good Story:
A revolutionary new technology that would allow cars to be powered by clean fuel made from the power of the sun is being developed.
The University Of Cambridge researchers are harnessing the power of photosynthesis to convert CO2, water, and sunlight into multi-carbon fuels. The fuels have a high energy density and can be easily stored or transported.
“Shining sunlight on the artificial leaves and getting liquid fuel from carbon dioxide and water is an amazing bit of chemistry,” said Dr. Motiar Rahaman, the new study’s first author.
“Normally, when you try to convert CO2 into another chemical product, you almost always get carbon monoxide or syngas, but here, we’ve been able to produce a practical liquid fuel just using the power of the Sun.”
