Photosynthesis to Create World’s Biofuel

Photosynthesis could be the answer to combating carbon dioxide emissions.

Scientists from the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have created a solar-powered electrolysis cell which will convert carbon dioxide to alcohols and biofuels at much higher efficiency rates than previously seen.

The cell, which scientists claim rivals the production of natural photosynthesis, is believed to be a major step in the move toward sustainable fuel creation.

The feat was achieved by optimising each component of a photovoltaic-electrochemical system to reduce losses.

Joel Ager, the Study’s Principal Investigator stated: “This is an exciting development.”

“As rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels change Earth’s climate, the need to develop sustainable sources of power has become increasingly urgent.”

“Our work here shows that we have a plausible path to making fuels directly from sunlight.”
