Artificial Leaf Technology Could One Day Power Our World

I’ve got some Big Green News for you: scientists at the University of Waterloo in Canada have come up with a new design for an artificial leaf. That means a whole new way of making cleaner burning fuels using a process that mimics photosynthesis! But…what’s an artificial leaf? And could it really help us move […]

Artificial Leaf Solar Cell: Breakthrough Solar Cell captures CO2 and Sunlight, produces Fuel

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have engineered a potentially game-changing solar cell that cheaply and efficiently converts atmospheric carbon dioxide directly into usable hydrocarbon fuel, using only sunlight for energy. Unlike conventional solar cells, which convert sunlight into electricity that must be stored in heavy batteries, the new device essentially does the […]
