University of New South Wales (UNSW) researchers have discovered a way to produce tenfold the amount of methane gas by naturally occurring microbes living in coal seams and on food waste. The innovation could make more natural gas available by extending the lifespan and increasing the number of coal seam gas wells, as well as […]

Researchers at Kazan University collaborating with their peers from Stanford University are working on catalysts that provide combustion during the heavy oil recovery process. The catalysts developed by the group have already shown promising results in lab tests, and the work is continuing. Kazan University’s Dr, Andrey Galukhin won a grant for this particular work […]

The DOE’s Center for Energy Studies at Rice University has finally reported studying the macro effects of liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. The report is helpful if not exactly specific. It depends on the type of consumer. Follow along to get an idea of where you might fit. Kenneth Medlock, senior director for the Center […]

Researchers from KU Leuven and Utrecht University have discovered a new approach to the production of diesel fuel. The new method would be used to produce much cleaner diesel and can quickly be scaled up for industrial use. The researchers suggest that in 5 to 10 years, we may see the first cars driven by […]

University of California at Berkeley chemists have developed an innovative new storage material for methane that could lessen the complexity of filling up with natural gas, and extend the range of such vehicles. The material is a flexible metal organic framework that expands when methane is pumped in. The UC Berkeley chemists and colleagues at […]
