Underwater #solar cells turn greenhouse gases into 'solar fuel'

Underwater solar cells turn greenhouse gases into 'solar fuel' 27. November 2015 | Research & Development , Markets & Trends , Global PV markets | By: Edgar Meza The process could one day play a key role in fighting climate change. The engineers have also provided design principles to help the photovoltaic industry build energy-efficient, corrosion-protected solar cells for other purposes. Underwater solar cells in tanks would spur chemical reactions to turn greenhouse gases and water into "solar fuels."Felipe Skroski/wikimedia commons Engineers at Stanford University have discovered how to use the sun's energy to combine water and carbon dioxide to create chemical products, a process known as artificial photosynthesis, using underwater solar cells. Functioning under water, the solar cells spur chemical reactions to convert captured greenhouse gases into fuel rather than f...
