Hi! I would like to request for information regarding:

1.) What field of research pertaining to Artificial Photosynthesis could the Philippines theoretically be successful, therefore revolving the type of facilities around that field of research. 

2.) Other than being a tropical country (Philippines), are there other strong factors that make the Philippines a viable location for an Artificial Photosynthesis Research Center.

If you can provide other relevant info related to viability of the research center here in the Philippines that would be great thank you.
