Description of call
"Fuel from the Sun: Artificial Photosynthesis"
The Horizon Prize for Fuels from the Sun: Artificial Photosynthesis aims to promote new technologies that
deliver fuels that can be used as a sustainable alternative to fossil energy and feedstocks for a range of
industrial processes. The focus of the prize is on proof-of-concept involving the building of a fully functional, bench-scale prototype device of an artificial photosynthesis synthetic fuel production system. The device to be built needs to integrate the whole artificial photosynthesis process from light capture to fuel production that generates a fuel capable of powering a small engine.
