University of Adelaide in Australia scientists have a new process for carbon neutral fuel with the development of a new efficient catalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air into synthetic natural gas in a ‘clean’ process using solar energy. The research undertaken by University of Adelaide in collaboration with CSIRO could make viable […]

Researchers at Lappeenranta University of Technology, (LUT) in Finland are engaged in The Neo-Carbon Energy Research Project and Technology with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd to enable the production of synthetic fuels straight from the air. The project is built on carbon dioxide capture, water electrolysis and subsequent synthesis units such as methanation […]

Chinese scientists have transformed rusty stainless steel mesh into electrodes with outstanding electrochemical properties for potassium-ion batteries. The scientists have made good use of a waste while finding an innovative solution to a technical problem. The research team reported their findings in the journal Angewandte Chemie. They describe that the rust is converted directly into […]

Argonne National Laboratory researchers have identified a nickel oxide compound as an unconventional but promising candidate material for high-temperature superconductivity. The project combined crystal growth, X-ray spectroscopy and computational theory. The team successfully synthesized single crystals of a metallic trilayer nickelate compound, a feat the researchers believe to be a first. John Mitchell, an Argonne […]

University of Houston (UH) researchers have discovered a new material that has proven an effective anode for acid and alkaline batteries, including emerging aqueous metal-ion batteries. Importantly, the material offers the promise of safe, long-lasting batteries that work across a range of temperatures and is quite low cost. Modern batteries power everything from cars to […]
