Part microbe, part machine: Bionic leaf sucks up carbon dioxide as it makes liquid fuel
A team of scientists at Harvard University says it has come up with a bionic leaf — a system that could use solar power and hydrogen-eating bacteria to generate liquid fuel. The findings, described in...
Reverse Photosynthesis Is 'Game Changer' For Creating Biofuels
A new method called reverse photosynthesis harnesses the power of sunlight to break down plant material and turn it into a revolutionary biofuel. Researchers say this will greatly reduce pollution.
Biofuel Tech Straight From The Farm
Nature’s figured it out already, how to best break down food into fuel. Now scientists have caught up, showing that fungi found in the guts of goats, horses and sheep could help fill up your gas tank ...
Material Inspired By Nature Could Turn Water Into Fuel
Scientists have theoretically designed a new material that could help supply the world with clean energy by turning water into fuel, using just the power of the sun. Chemists at the University of Read...
