Cornell University scientists can both sequester carbon dioxide and produce electricity using their newly developed an oxygen-assisted aluminum/carbon dioxide power cell that uses electrochemical reactions. Cornell’s press release states, “the human race will always leave its carbon footprint on the Earth, it must continue to find ways to lessen the impact of its fossil fuel […]






University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering (UTFASE) engineers have developed a technique powered by renewable energies such as solar or wind to turn carbon dioxide back into fuels. This release is only a coupe days after a major U.S. research team got their release out. The hunt is on. The researchers led […]






Researchers led by the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) have used a multi-scale approach and a comprehensive study of over 40 materials to identify parameters and mechanism that control properties and stability in lead-free hybrid perovskites. Currently lead, a human toxin, is used in perovskite material preparations. Lead is nasty and the younger a human ingests […]






Researchers at Ruhr-Universitaet-Bochum have discovered a catalyst that performs the highly selective conversion and recycling of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into ethylene. Ethylene, commonly found with natural gas, or distilled or cracked from crude oil, is an important source material for the chemical industry. The team headed by Professor Dr. Beatriz Roldan Cuenya from […]






Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists have combined biology and 3-D printing to create the first reactor that can continuously produce methanol from methane at room temperature and pressure. The team removed enzymes from methanotrophs, bacteria that eat methane, and mixed them with polymers that they printed or molded into innovative reactors. The team’s research […]
