Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and the ETH Zurich have collaborated to develop a ground-breaking process for making solar fuel. The new procedure uses the sun’s thermal energy to convert carbon dioxide and water directly into synthetic fuel. The team has unveiled a chemical process that uses the sun’s thermal energy to convert […]






Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is showing how a hydrogen fuel economy could finally become a reality with their recent discovery of a cheap, stable and efficient means of getting hydrogen from water. If the research is repeatable and can scale a hydrogen fuel economy could finally become a reality with their discovery […]






University of California – Irvine (UCI) researchers have devised a new way of recycling millions of tons of plastic garbage into liquid fuel. Its an egregious problem worldwide. University of California, Irvine and the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC) in China collaborated in the research. UCI chemist Zhibin Guan explained, “Synthetic plastics are a […]






Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) scientists used water doped with hydrazine in a transition metal dichalcogenides electrocatalyst. The new concept presents one of the best hydrogen water splitting electrocatalyst processes to date and also opens up a whole new direction for research in electrochemistry and semiconductor device physics. The LANL scientists are working on understanding […]






Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) researchers have engineered a strain of bacteria that enables a ‘one-pot’ method for producing advanced biofuels from a slurry of pre-treated plant material. LBNL’s achievement is a critical step in making biofuels a viable competitor to fossil fuels by streamlining the production process. The achievement is a critical step in […]
