Artificial photosynthesis Current Affairs, GK & News

Artificial photosynthesis

Artificial photosynthesis is a chemical process that mimics the photosynthesis that occurs in plants and other autotrophic organisms. This process is carbon neutral as by-products are generally environmentally friendly. It can be used for increasing efficiency of solar energy utilization. Scientists at JNCASR have developed an artificial photosynthetic process that uses solar energy to convert ..

Artificial Photosynthesis to Provide Solutions for Carbon Capture

A team of Scientists from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research have found a method that mimic the Photosynthesis which is the natural process of reducing the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Highlights The artificial photosynthesis method was developed in order to capture excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This method harnesses the solar ..




CSIR Pune organisation developed an artificial leaf to create fuel from sunlight

The researchers at the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)-National Chemical Laboratory in Pune have developed an artificial leaf that absorbs sunlight to generate hydrogen fuel from water, an advance that may provide clean energy for powering eco-friendly cars in the future. The device consists of semiconductors stacked in a manner to simulate the ..
