Earth 2050 - The Future of Energy - Sustainable fuels from biofuels to artificial photosynthesis

By the year 2050 the world populations will have grown to 9 billion, we will have vast Megacities, and energy demand will double.

The number of cars will grow from 1 billion to 2 billion and our demand for resources will soar.

We need new sources of energy and in particular new liquid fuels for transport. Whilst electric cars are on the rise, battery technology falls well short for applications in trucks and airplanes.

These technolgies are around today with Brazil already producing 40% of its on transport liquid fuel by making ethanol from sugar cane.

But this solution will not meet world demand due to competition for farming land between food and energy crops.

To meet world demand 2nd generation biofuels will be required.

This video looks at current developments from synthetic biology to material chemistry and artificial photosynthesis.
