Cardiff University scientists have devised a new way of deriving hydrogen from grass using just sunlight and a cheap catalyst. The study results suggests the common yard grass, fescue, could become a source of cheap and clean renewable energy. The team of UK researchers, including experts from Cardiff University’s Cardiff Catalysis Institute are showing that […]



Cornell University biological engineers have deciphered the cellular strategy of an anaerobic microbe feeding on carbon monoxide to make the biofuel ethanol. Ludmilla Aristilde, assistant professor in biological and environmental engineering said, “Instead of having the waste go to waste, you make it into something you want. In order to make the microbes do our […]



Scientists from the Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials (DWI), RWTH Aachen University and Hanyang University in Seoul have significantly improved a key component for the development of Redox Flow battery energy storage systems. The team has developed a hydrophobic membrane that keeps its barrier functions in place as it does not swell in water. The […]



University of Houston researchers have reported the first explanation for how perovskite materials change during production. The team’s goal was to find a more efficient way to absorb light, a critical step toward the large-scale manufacture of better and less-expensive perovskite solar panels. Yan Yao, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering and lead author […]



Researchers at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have identified a whole new class of high-performing organic molecules that’s inspired by vitamin B2. Your humble writer likes these posts about making new ideas from suggestions sourced in unrelated fields most of all. The new high-performing organic molecules can safely store electricity from intermittent energy […]
