Shaping The Future Of Renewable Resources Through Eic Support

Scientists in Spain say they've created an artificial leaf capable of turning water and carbon dioxide into fuel and chemicals, the Guardian reports.

"When we recognized our prototype after successfully creating an artificial leaf capable of using sunlight to turn water and CO2 into fuels and chemicals, aware that improvements were necessary but constrained by funding," project coordinator Jos ?'Ram ? 'n Gal ? 'n-Mascar ?'s says in a press release.

"Now we have the opportunity to scale up and enhance our initial creation, bringing circularity to sustainability."

The so-called A-LEAF project was funded by the European Innovation Council, which says the leaf's proof of principle "opens the way for a transition towards circularity transforming CO2 into a feedstock, while mitigating the impact of climate change."

According to Phys.org, the researchers hope to use the technology to reduce carbon emissions in the atmosphere by converting CO2 into water, which can then be used to make chemicals and fuels.

The "super leaf" is being developed by a company called JOLT, which was also part of the A-LEAF project.
