Israeli researchers have developed a power cell that produces electricity and hydrogen, using nothing but spinach, water and sunlight, Haaretz reports.
“We used spinach, but you can use any leaf,” says Prof. Noam Adir of the Technion team that designed the breakthrough bio-photo-electro-chemical cell.
The spinach cell could be perfect for remote villages with modest power needs, Adir said.
“We proved that energy can be made really green using material at negligible cost, with no contaminating synthetics, and no expensive or rare or toxic elements.”
