A range of technology minerals, which are an essential ingredient in everything from laptops and cell phones to hybrid or electric cars to solar panels and copper wiring for homes are going to become in short supply. Additionally, base metals like copper are also a matter of immense concern. An international team of researchers, led […]

VTT Technical Research Center of Finland and German company ZAE Bayern have built a pilot system emission-free, solar-powered chiller. Demand and the need for cooling are growing, the potential market is world-wide, particularly in warm countries. VTT and ZAE Bayern have developed a solar-powered 10 kW chiller. This absorption chiller works in the same way […]

Georgia Institute of Technology materials researchers have created a nanofiber that could help enable the next generation of rechargeable batteries and increase the efficiency of hydrogen production from water electrolysis. In a study published in Nature Communications and sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the researchers describe the development of double perovskite nanofiber that can […]

Manchester University scientists have revealed how arsenic molecules might be used to ‘fish out’ or clean up the most toxic elements from radioactive nuclear waste. This could be a breakthrough that could make the decommissioning industry even safer and more effective. If successful the method may reduce the public relations tension in fission driven nuclear […]

Stanford University researchers led by Professor Roger Howe say new material using graphene could reignite the field of thermionic energy conversion, improving the way we produce electricity and reducing the impact the process has on the environment. The concept is based on a satellite-powering technology that was abandoned decades ago that has been reinvented to […]
