Even now, we can make solar cells that convert sunlight into electricity at
efficiencies of 30 percent or so. Molecular manufacturing could not only make
solar cells much cheaper, but could also make them tiny enough to be
incorporated into ...
ENDING CHEMICAL POLLUTION, CUTTING RESOURCE CONSUMPTION We'
ve already seen how molecular manufacturing can provide clean solar energy
without paving over desert ecosystems, and how clean energy and common ...
In each, place a small solar-power plant, a molecular- processing plant, and a
microscopic grain of sodium. The processing plant collects chlorine-containing
compounds and separates out the chlorine. Combining this with the sodium
