A team of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has now developed a hybrid system that produces renewable molecular hydrogen and uses it to synthesize carbon dioxide into methane, the primary constituent of natural gas. The team had already cleared quite a milestone with their hybrid system of […]






Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology minimize the acceleration of industrial robots reducing energy consumption by up to 40 percent – while retaining the given production time. The Chalmers team developed a new optimization algorithm that optimizes the robot’s movements reducing acceleration and deceleration, as well as the time the robot is at a standstill […]






Professor Ian Kinloch, Professor of Material Science at the University of Manchester added a small amount of graphene to strontium titanium oxide. The resulting composite thermoelectric material was able to convert heat which would otherwise be lost as waste into an electric current over a broad temperature range, all the way down to room temperature. […]






Distinguished Fellow Ali Erdemir and his team at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have developed a newly patented technology that greatly extends the lifetime of mechanical parts. From bearings and shafts to cutting tools metal parts that wear out quickly consume a great deal of time, manpower, money and the energy used […]






Challa V. Kumar, Ph.D working at the University of Connecticut reported today the development of a unique, “green” antenna that could potentially double the efficiencies of certain kinds of solar cells and make them more affordable. The report was presented at the 250th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society held in Boston. […]
