Plants Produce Clean Energy


Plants perform photosynthesis, using sunlight, water and carbon dioxide to produce nutrients and oxygen. Chloroplasts in plant cells contain membranes called “Thylakoids” which house chlorophyll pigments. Chlorophyll acts as an antenna to collect and convert light into chemical energy, which then decomposes water to release oxygen.
