Artificial Photosynthesis: A New Way To Power Your Home?
Sun Catalytix has announced that it is aiming to generate electricity by developing a process called artificial photosynthesis.
Dan Nocera, the founder of Sun Catalytix, has claimed that his company is developing a process by which a mere bottle of water treated with a photovoltaic array could be used to power an average household for a day. According to Nocera: “We emulated photosynthesis for large-scale storage of solar energy.”
The announcement came at the inaugural ARPA-E conference, held on March 2. A video below explains more:
