    Abstract: Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are a low-cost alternative to thin-film and silicon-based solar cells. Platinum is an effective catalytic material for creating DSSC counter electrodes (CEs), but it is also pricey. In this work, PEDOT was used as a counter electrode and ZnO was used as a photoanode. Natural dyes such as Fragaria x ananass, Amaran... Show More

    Abstract: Biomass gasification is a chemical conversion of solid biomass renewable energy constituents into a gaseous combustible substance often regarded as producer gas through progressive thermochemical synthesis. The gasification method produces gas fuels required for power generation which is considered the best alternative to fossil fuels that accounte... Show More
