New Material Replicates Photosynthesis to Generate Clean Energy
A new material replicates photosynthesis to generate clean energy and vanish CO2.

A UCF assistant professor has found how to trigger photosynthesis in a synthetic material.

The process can turn greenhouse gas into the clean air and produce energy at the same time.

This has great potential for creating a technology that could significantly reduce greenhouse gases linked to climate change, while also creating a clean way to produce energy.



UCF Assistant Professor Fernando Uribe-Romo, said:

“This work is a breakthrough. Tailoring materials that will absorb a specific color of light is very difficult from the scientific point of view, but from the societal point of view we are contributing to the development of a technology that can help reduce greenhouse gases.”
