Cambridge scientists use light and plants to make cheap, clean hydrogen

Everyone from startups to car companies as big as Toyota have seen the potential of hydrogen as a clean fuel source for vehicles, since its only byproduct is water. But hydrogen is often made with natural gas, which may be less polluting than oil but isn't exactly clean, so six University of Cambridge scientists developed a way to make the fuel source using sunlight and biomass like leaves.
