    Another way to photosynthesize hydrogen from high-tech 'leaves'

    Maybe we should just admit that the future is unpredictable, especially the hydrogen economy. Just recently, we've seen Toyota predict the cost of hydrogen will be between $5-and-$7 per kilogram in the future. UC Davis also recently released a report that says hydrogen can be inexpensive in the ...

    MIT team develops world's first inexpensive "artificial leaf"

    Long considered a scientific Holy Grail, a functioning "artificial leaf" has apparently been created by a team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In a presentation at the 241st National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim, CA, Dr. Daniel Nocera of MIT dropped a ...

    In recent years, algae has gotten a fair bit of attention for its potential use as a feedstock for producing biodiesel. While the net carbon output of algae sourced liquid fuels could be a huge boon to the environment, there is a possible path that could ...

    Brookhaven National Laboratory working with photosynthesis and fuel cells

    U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory has got a few interesting projects going on right now that may be of interest to our readers. First is a project headed by chemist James Muckerman where the "goal is to design a bio-inspired system that can produce fuels like methanol or ...

    Using artificial photosynthesis to produce hydrogen

    Hydrogen is being widely pursued as a fuel sources because it produces no greenhouse gases when used in either combustion of fuel cells. Producing hydrogen can be problematic though since pure hydrogen is rare. Scientists in Germany and the United States are working on yet another possible ...
