Cambridge boffins turn biomass into hydrogen

Scientists have developed a way to use sunlight to turn unprocessed biomass into clean hydrogen. The steps to create the new solar fuel are outlined in a research paper from the University of Cambridge, which says the sustainable and relatively cheap process could have significant implications for the future of energy generation. The biomass is suspended in a mixture of catalytic nanoparticles and alkaline […]

‘Water and sunlight could create low carbon fuels’

Research into solar fuels has taken a major step forward, with scientists nearly doubling the number of materials that could be used in the process. Some believe that by using just sunlight, Carbon Dioxide and water, a clean liquid fuel could be created to power cars, airplanes and homes without contributing to climate change. Researchers […]
