R&D breakthrough: Make biofuels on sunlight

Reverse photosynthesis. That is what a research team from University of Copenhagen with Professor Claus Felby in front calls its sensational discovery. The group has found a method where sunlight can speed up production of biofuels and other bioproducts significantly. Copenhagen University is a member of BioRefining Alliance, which works to promote advanced biorefining.
