U of T Claim Greenhouse Gas Breakthrough

New Solar Power Generator Said To Also Absorb CO2 Gas

The folks over at University of Toronto’s Solar Fuels Research Cluster may have just gone and saved the planet. Researchers there say they’ve found a way to convert carbon dioxide emissions into an energy rich fuel in a carbon-neutral way. And they’re doing it with one of the most readily available materials on the planet… sand. Silicon nanocrystals are being used in a process said to not only produce solar energy without harmful emissions, but do it in a way that converts the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into a form of fuel. They’re working on ways of boosting output before starting a pilot refinery. Read more about it here.
