‘Artificial forest’ a step forward in carbon-neutral fuel

Researchers report the first fully integrated nanosystem for artificial photosynthesis, described as an “artificial forest”.

The advancement is important to the development of carbon-neutral renewable energy sources.

Artificial photosynthesis directly converts solar energy into chemical fuels. It is one of the most promising of solar technologies - there’s enough energy in one hour’s worth of global sunlight to meet all human needs for a year.
