Argonne and SLAC will develop artificial photosynthesis methods to enable direct air capture of CO2 while expanding sources of energy through the conversion of CO2 to fuels and other useful chemicals. Leaves make it look easy, but capturing and using carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air is a challenging process for scientists […]
