Aa ? 800,000 research project

photosynthesis replica attempt to make a more fuel efficient renewable

Scientists try to imitate

plants use sunlight how to make more efficient renewable fuel.

Aa> Researchers at the University of East Anglia (UEA) embark on a ? 800,000 project to replicate photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert sunlight into sugars to help them grow .

The method can be used to produce hydrogen, which can be used as free fuel emissions from cars, or converted into green electricity.

"This is mainly due to the problems of conversion of these forms of energy in fuels from which energy can be released on demand - for example, when we turn on a light water boiling playing computer games or driving a car. "
