DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have announced a new organic aqueous flow battery, which uses inexpensive and readily available materials. Energy storage system owners could see significant savings from a new flow battery technology that costs about 60% less than today’s standard flow batteries. The organic aqueous flow battery, described in a paper published in the […]

McGill University researchers propose in their new study to use metal powders, produced using clean primary energy sources, to provide a more viable long-term replacement for petrochemical fuels than other widely discussed alternatives, such as hydrogen, biofuels or batteries. The team led by McGill University professor Jeffrey Bergthorson, lead author of the new study, suggests […]

A team of chemical engineers at the University of Pittsburgh has identified the two main factors for determining the optimal catalyst for turning atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) into liquid fuel. This is a major breakout for those of us interested in getting to more, better and cheaper energy for the world’s economy. The concept of […]

Researchers from KU Leuven and Utrecht University have discovered a new approach to the production of diesel fuel. The new method would be used to produce much cleaner diesel and can quickly be scaled up for industrial use. The researchers suggest that in 5 to 10 years, we may see the first cars driven by […]

University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists have come up with a new method for making interspecies yeast hybrids in the lab. The makers of beer, wine, biofuels and other products that depend on yeasts may soon have many more strains of the microorganism to work with. Beer first. About 500 years ago, the accidental natural hybridization of […]
