‘Artificial leaf’ tech to power cars?
Img/2012/2/21/leaf-small.jpgLondon: British scientists claim to be working on a project to produce an oil substitute, using photosynthesis , which could power the cars, ships and planes of the future.A team at Glasgow University says the oil substitute is being made using "artificial leaf " technology - it`s actually a twisted version of photosynthesis, the method plants use to harness sunlight , but uses electricity to spark the reaction.Rather than producing organic material from carbon dioxide as plants do, the scientists plan to produce hydrocarbon "fuel" which could be used in petrol engines to power cars and even aeroplanes , the `Daily Mail` reported.
