Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) researchers have come up with a new anode for natural gas fuel cells. The development may make commercialization of the natural gas fuel cell practical thanks to the development of electrode materials that maintain long-term stability in hydrocarbon fuels. The advantage of using this material includes that […]






Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) researchers believe we are “running towards a cliff with no fence” from the current plans to retire U.S. power plants. The team found that power plant retirement trends will complicate achieving long-term carbon dioxide emission reduction targets and require a significant increase in capital investments. In their paper now published in […]






University of Washington (UW) researchers have developed a fast, inexpensive method to make electrodes for supercapacitors. The important applications include electric cars, wireless telecommunications and high-powered lasers. But to realize these applications, supercapacitors need better electrodes, which connect the supercapacitor to the devices that depend on their energy. These electrodes need to be both quicker […]






Imperial College London engineers have overturned a 100-year-old scientific law used to describe how fluid flows through rocks. Scientists from the College have used the Diamond Light Source facility in the UK to make 3D videos that show in more detail than ever before how fluids move through rock. For over one hundred years, engineers […]






Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Coordination Chemistry and Catalysis Unit led by Prof. Julia Khusnutdinova have developed an efficient CO2 recycling catalyst based on an inexpensive and abundant metal: manganese. Manganese is the third most abundant metal in Earth’s crust after titanium and iron, and presents much lower toxicity as compared to many […]
