LICROX project funded with 3M€ to convert sunlight into chemical energy

Achieving artificial photosynthesis would be one of the most efficient paths to fight climate change. Photoelectrochemical cells (PECs) have the potential to become efficient and cost-effective technologies, able to directly convert sunlight into chemical energy. The LICROX project will implement a new type of PECs that mimics photosynthesis. By incorporating three complementary light-absorbing elements, the […]
