Solar reactor to make fuel from sunlight

By / December 27, 2010

Researchers have developed a prototype device that directly converts sun rays into fuels that can be stored. The BBC reports that the devices uses a quartz window and cavity to focus sunlight into a cylinder lined with cerium oxide. According to Gizmag, ceria is hygroscopic and will also absorb carbon dioxide. As the sunlight heats…
