SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Artificial leaves that can turn sunlight into medicine

post-image
Like actual leaves, the artificial leaves take in sunlight and use it to create something entirely new, only instead of generating fuel for a living plant, they can produce medicine for humans. When sunlight hits certain liquids flowing through the leaves it sparks a chemical reaction. This is a process that would normally require electric power, harsh chemicals, or both, but by using sunlight to power the medicine production, it becomes much more sustainable. https://bgr.com/2019/09/10/artificial-leaf-study-solar-power-medicine/
