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.”
