Cambridge research team reaches EU ‘Fuel from the Sun’ Final with artificial leaves capable of producing a sustainable solar fuel

6 December 2022

Researchers at the University of Cambridge have developed a system of artificial leaves that use sunlight to turn carbon dioxide and water into a synthetic fuel known as syngas. Their scaled-up demonstrator system, built for the final of the European Union’s ‘Fuel from the Sun’ competition, showed potential for the production of syngas under real-world conditions.
