San Francisco: US researchers have created a hybrid system of semiconducting nanowires and bacteria to mimic the natural photosynthetic process, an advancement they believe could be a potentially game-changing breakthrough. The system is designed to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions before they are vented into the atmosphere and then, powered by solar energy, convert that greenhouse gas into chemical products, including biodegradable plastics, pharmaceutical drugs and hopefully liquid fuels, Xinhua news agency reported."We believe our system is a revolutionary leap forward in the field of artificial photosynthesis," said Peidong Yang.
