Artificial photosynthesis will allow to receive more energy from sunlight and will enable it to be effectively accumulated.

This process will make it possible to convert sunlight into chemical energy that will be convenient to store. There will be no by-products like greenhouse gases. On the contrary, in the process carbon dioxide can be utilized in the same way as it does in plants.

Plants for this use chlorophyll . It is contained in leaves and captures sunlight, and a set of enzymes and other proteins uses this light to split water molecules into hydrogen, electrons and oxygen (protons). Electrons and hydrogen are used to convert CO2 into nutrients for the plant, and oxygen is released into the atmosphere.
