Nov 28, 2010 According to a research from the Academia Sinica and the National Cheng Kung University in Taipei and Tainan, glowing bio-LED trees could replace street lamps.
Researchers have implanted glowing , sea urchin shaped gold nanoparticles, known as bio LEDs, inside the leaves of a plant. The new nanoparticles could replace the electricity powered street light with biologically powered light that removes CO2 from the atmosphere 24 hours a day.
It’s said that bio-LED could be used to make roadside trees luminescent at night in the future. This will save energy and absorb CO2 as the bio-LED luminescence will cause the chloroplast to conduct photosynthesis.
