Research by Professor Marc Koper and PhD student Jing Shen at University in Leiden, the Netherlands, discovered a new catalyst that makes natural gas from CO2. The team is showing how this process can be implemented in a cost-effective and controllable way for carbon dioxide recycling. The conversion of the greenhouse gas CO2 into natural […]






University of Pittsburgh (UP) researchers have computationally derived a metal-free catalyst that captures converts and recycles the carbon dioxide into formic acid. The new metal-free catalyst that does the molecular recombining without the use of expensive or extreme conditions. Turning carbon dioxide effluent into a more valuable chemical would reduce emissions while creating a revenue […]






A team of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has now developed a hybrid system that produces renewable molecular hydrogen and uses it to synthesize carbon dioxide into methane, the primary constituent of natural gas. The team had already cleared quite a milestone with their hybrid system of […]






BioEnergy Science Center (BESC) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers have crashed through another barrier to commercially viable biofuels with the engineering of a microbe that improves isobutanol yields by a factor of 10. The group’s work builds on results from 2011 in which researchers reported on the first genetically engineered microbe to produce […]






The open access journal GigaScience has presented a virtual package of data for biogas production. The virtual package has been made reusable in a containerized form to allow scientists to better understand the production of biofuels. The biogas topic is the production of methane through the anaerobic digestion (fermentation) of organic matter. The work offered […]
