Artificial Photosynthesis Effort Takes Root

Artificial Photosynthesis Effort Takes Root | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

A $122 million innovation hub could speed the development of devices for making fuel from water and sunlight.

Two years after first getting funding, one of the current hubs—a Caltech-based effort focused on using sunlight to make liquid fuels—says it has made substantial progress toward devices that convert sunlight and water into hydrogen and oxygen that could be used to power a car or generate electricity on demand. Eventually, the researchers hope to combine the hydrogen with carbon from carbon dioxide to make liquid fuels similar to gasoline or diesel.

To remember; #Pope #Francis Calls for Action on #Climate Change & #Capitalism on a Planet "Exploited by Human #Greed" | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
Pope Francis is set to make history by issuing the first-ever comprehensive Vatican teachings on climate change, which will urge 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide to take action.
