Researchers from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and the Universidad Miguel Hernández of Elche have found the way to increase biomass production by using sewage sludge as energy crop fertilizers. The idea’s press release is getting international attention. Its not a new idea exactly. The City of Milwaukee Wisconsin has been the source of “Milorganite“, […]

Researchers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China (HKST) have devised an ultra-thin liquid crystal displays (LCDs) screen that operates without a power source. The compact, energy-efficient display technology of visual information may one day have applications in products such as e-book readers, flexible displays or as a security measure on credit […]

A sponge-like plastic that sops up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide was presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society by chemists from the University of Liverpool. The material, a relative of the plastics used in food containers could be integrated into power plant smokestacks in the future. The report on the material is […]

The net-zero energy test house at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in suburban Washington, D.C., absorbed a cold winter and produced a positive energy balance when it closed its one-year anniversary on July 1st. The surplus energy is said to about equal to powering an electric car rated at 2.94 miles per […]

A Pacific Northwest National Laboratory team found commercial buildings could cut their heating and cooling electricity use by an average of 57% with advanced energy-efficiency controls. The team built the results with a year-long trial of the controls at malls, grocery stores and other buildings across the country. The real world study demonstrated higher energy […]
