The coming "#GlucoseEconomy"? Researchers are developing artificial photosynthesis in the lab: sun+H20+CO2 = energy+O2 = awesome
I heart this so much.
Over the past few decades, there have been many attempts at the artificial leaf, including the ongoing project at Harvard conducted by Nocera, whose goal is to create a low-cost system that produces hydrogen fuel. But JCAP’s researchers are going beyond hydrogen; they want to use photosynthesis to make a hydrocarbon fuel like gasoline that can fill your car’s tank.
