Science History: Fuel Produced on Water

  University of Cambridge, Artificial Leaves, Clean Fuel                                    Source:  University of Cambridge New Clean Fuel Source From Sun, Water & Artificial Leaves Scientists at the UK's University of Cambridge have invented a new, innovative way to create clean fuel with lots of potential.  They've invented innovative, artificial leaves that convert sunlight and water, that the leaves are immersed in, into clean fuel.  The prestigious University is calling this a major scientific milestone.  They say it is the first time that clean fuel has been generated on water.   Nature's Way This intriguing concept was inspired by nature.  The artificial leaves work by photosynthesis, just the way real plants do when they convert sunlight into food.  Scientific testing of the devices on the River Cam shows the artificial leaves work as efficiently as real leaves except they are creating clean fuel. How Does It Work? The scientists use two different types of fuel
