Optimised catalyst boosts artificial photosynthesis

Optimised catalyst boosts artificial photosynthesis
A new catalyst created by U of T Engineering researchers brings them one step closer to artificial photosynthesis - a system that, just like plants, would use renewable energy to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into stored chemical energy. By both capturing carbon emissions and storing energy from solar or wind power, the invention provides a one-two punch in the fight against climate change.

Printable solar cells are one step closer

Printable solar cells are one step closer
A U of T Engineering innovation could make printing solar cells as easy and inexpensive as printing a newspaper. Dr. Hairen Tan and his team have cleared a critical manufacturing hurdle in the development of a relatively new class of solar devices called perovskite solar cells. This alternative solar technology could lead to low-cost, printable solar panels capable of turning nearly any surface into a power generator.

Converting gaseous carbon dioxide to fuel

Converting gaseous carbon dioxide to fuel
A team of scientists from the University of Toronto believes they've found a way to convert carbon dioxide emissions into energy-rich fuel in a carbon-neutral cycle that uses a very abundant natural resource: silicon. Silicon, readily available in sand, is the seventh most-abundant element in the universe and the second most-abundant element in the earth's crust.
