Coming up behind cell-based meat there's the even newer concept of 'Solar Foods': a Finnish company called just that is using electricity from solar panels to electrolyse
water and produce hydrogen.
Secondly, it ignores the practical challenges that the electricity sector would face in meeting expanded demand for its product to electrolyse
When they used a palladium cathode to electrolyse
heavy water (containing deuterium) they noticed that more heat was given off than was possible from chemical processes, implying that fusion was occuring (so called cold fusion).
Sridhar led a project that built a Mars oxygen production cell using a yttria-stabilized zirconia solid-electrolyte ionic conductor to electrolyse
carbon dioxide into oxygen and carbon monoxide.
In fact vast amounts of extra electricity would be needed to electrolyse
We were promised three square meals a day in pill for; natty, silver jump-suits that discreetly electrolyse
and burn off our love handles; video phones that -according to the legion of science fiction films that have implemented them -have to crackle half way through the conversation; funky metallic robots designed to the do the housework, but with a fatal flaw in them that eventually drives them to rebel; freedom from hunger and disease; De Lorean-likehovercars to ease the petrol fume chocked burden on the highways; computers that wish us a `` good morning'',and then cause all of our domestic appliances to rebel against us,and,finally and most fantastically,more leisure time!
