Floating “Artificial Leaves” Produce Clean Fuel

Reading Time: < 1 minute


  • Researchers from the University of Cambridge have designed ultra thin floating “artificial leaves” that generate clean fuels from sunlight and water.
  • These leaves could be used to generate a sustainable alternative to petrol without taking up space on land.
  • This is the first time clean fuel has been generated on water, and if they are scaled up, they could be used on polluted waterways and help reduce the global shipping industry’s reliance on fossil fuels.
