It's nature re-coded
Sustainable solution that turns carbon dioxide into renewable chemicals.
Built by nature, amplified by science.
Our vision is to embrace what nature has built and amplify it by science.
Liquid Sun gives us the capability to re-engineer one of oldest energy sources in the world for a pure source of liquid hydrocarbons – ready for industrial applications.
Liquid Sun is a solar fuel cell that is mimicking Nature's way of energy production. It relies on carbon cycling and photosynthesis by converting CO2 and H2O into hydrocarbons and oxygen with the inexhaustible energy coming from the sun.
In fact, Liquid Sun is not only producing value-added commodity chemicals and storing solar energy in transportable fuels but it also alleviates the greenhouse effect.

Factory on a chip
The technology of Liquidsun can be fitted into a monolitchic chip, which means that thereis a limited number of moving parts making the solution reliable.
Existing distribution infrastructure
The fuels produced are easy to store and transport with existing distribution infrastructure. There is a wide range of existing uses cases.
The solution can be fitted into existing powerplants to eliminate CO2. It can also be used in closed environments e.g. marine industry, aviation and space.
