Carbon Dioxide and Sunlight Converted into Fuel with Innovative Solar Cell
A new, innovative solar cell that can convert carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into usable hydrocarbon fuel has been developed by scientists at the University of Illinois, Chicago. The efficient and affordable solar cell uses only solar energy for the conversion.
The research was financially supported by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, and the results have been published in the July 29, 2016, issue of the journal Science. An application for a provisional patent has also been filed.
