Turning Waste to Power

Researchers from the University of Cambridge are creating technology to turn waste into power. They have developed a solar-powered reactor that converts captured carbon dioxide and plastic waste into sustainable fuels and other valuable chemical products. The reactor’s ability to transform carbon dioxide into syngas is a crucial building block for sustainable liquid fuels. These fuels are a viable solution to reduce our reliance on traditional fossil fuels. Plastic waste, like plastic bottles are converted into glycolic acid, which is widely used in the cosmetic industry.


The results of this research mark a significant point in the pursuit of clean energy and environmentally conscious practices. By successfully harnessing the power of the sun to convert waste into valuable resources, this solar-powered reactor takes us a big step closer to the development of clean fuels that can power our economy sustainably.
