The advance of green energy is directly related to the obtaining of new crystalline materials. Zeolites, for example, are porous materials that are used as catalysers in the oil industry and as molecular sieves in the purification of water. The effectiveness of solar energy depends on silicon crystals. And the great challenge of energy storage lies in improving the crystallization of semiconductor materials. Do you know how a solar power plant works? Do you know what a fuel cell and a catalyst are? Can you imagine how a molecular sieve purifies water?
