A researcher at Waterloo Engineering has borrowed from nature to create an “artificial leaf” that turns carbon dioxide (CO2) into an alternative fuel.
Yimin Wu, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, is now working to improve and commercialize the technology as a tool in the fight against climate change.
“I’m extremely excited about the potential of this discovery to change the game,” he said. “Climate change is an urgent problem and we can help reduce CO2 emissions while also creating an alternative fuel.”
