Biomimicry taking over at Singapore's new NTU lab - seems simple: copy leaf design for synthetic photosynthesis

SINGAPORE - Scientists from the Nanyang Technological University have set up a new laboratory - the first in Asia - that aims to turn water into hydrogen fuel. According to the researchers, the development of this technology may help to bring down the cost of using solar energy here to nearly the same level as conventional energy sources. The lab will use what is known as "artificial leaf" technology, inspired by the way leaves use sunlight to produce energy, NTU president-designate Bertil Andersson told reporters yesterday. This will allow for the separation of water into hydrogen and oxygen. The solar energy can then be converted into hydrogen in large quantities in a clean and sustainable manner. Current technology requires huge amounts of energy to draw small amounts of hydrogen from water, making it not commercially viable. The lab will be jointly managed by NTU's Sch...
