Artificial Photosynthesis could be the key to cleaner environment

Researchers at Berkeley Labs have achieved success in artificial photosynthesis with a system that is able to capture carbon dioxide emissions, powered by solar energy. The process is capable of converting the CO2 into chemical products including liquid fuels, biodegradable plastics and pharmaceutical drugs.

The research team at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have achieved success in creating a hybrid system of semiconducting nanowires and bacteria that work in a way similar to natural photosynthes...
