System turns sunlight into fertilizer
    2017-04-05  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    哈佛研发仿生树叶

    A new green revolution could be brought about by a radical new leaf that builds on nature and surpasses it.

    The bionic* leaf is an artificial* system that mimics the process of photosynthesis* that is used by plants to produce fuel to create fertilizer*. The device could one day be used to help boost crop yields in developing countries and help tackle world hunger.

    Harvard University researchers believe that their creation, which uses bacteria*, sunlight, water and air to make fertilizer in the very soil where crops are grown, could help spur the next agricultural* revolution.

    The team is led by Daniel Nocera, a leading researcher in biochemistry* who is known for his work on the artificial leaf. Nocera’s artificial leaf is a device that mimics a natural leaf by splitting water into hydrogen* and oxygen* when exposed to sunlight.

    The bionic leaf then introduces the bacteria Ralstonia eutropha* to the process.

    The bacteria consumes hydrogen and takes carbon dioxide* out of the air and turns it into liquid fertilizer.
