The challenge encourages to build an bench-scale prototype of an artificial photosynthesis based system which would be able to produce an useable synthetic fuel.
The artificial photosynthesis is understood as a process that can mimick the physical chemistry of natural photosynthesis within the absortion of solar energy in form the of photons. Thus, the solution is required to use this energy to generate fuel molecules through a synthetic system to be delivered as a single integrated device which uses either biomimetic, nanotechnology, synthetic biology or a combination of them.
The contest is open to all legal entities or groups of legal entities.
– Degree of system integration from light capture to fuel production.
– Device/system performance.
– Fuel production to be used in an engine.
– Widest market potential.
– Commercial potential of the device.
