Panasonic produces organic material from CO2 and water

Panasonic is developing an artifical photosynthesis system that produces organic material from water and CO2, using the energy from sunlight. The current prototype uses a nitrate semi-conducter as in LED lamps and produces formic acid with an efficiency of 0.2 %. In the future Panasonic wants to produce hydrocarbons and alcohols at an efficiency similar to that of plants.
