A-LEAF race in the 12th Barcelona Science Festival

| June 14, 2018

Artificial Photosynthesis was present at the 12th Science Festival celebrated in Barcelona last Sunday, June 12th.

Some researchers from the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) explained the A-LEAF project to children from different ages through a ‘unique’ car race. One of the cars was powered by petrol and the other one used a solar fuel (methane) generated from CO2 and water, which is one of the ultimate objectives of A-LEAF. And the winner was… the children and adults witnessing the race as they learnt that artificial photosynthesis could be a green alternative for the generation of environmentally friendly fuels!
