Washington State University researchers have created a catalyst capable of reducing pollutants at the lower temperatures expected in advanced engines. As cars become more fuel efficient, less heat is wasted out the exhaust, which makes it harder to clean up the pollutants being emitted. The work of researchers at Washington State University, Pacific Northwest National […]

A Johns Hopkins University team of chemical engineers has drawn inspiration from the ancient Egyptian tradition of gilding to make modern-day fuel cells less expensive and more powerful. Egyptians artists at the time of King Tutankhamun often covered cheaper metals (copper, for instance) with a thin layer of a gleaming precious metal such as gold […]

Kanazawa University researchers have found a novel carboxylate-type liquid zwitterion they developed as a solvent of biomass, which could dissolve cellulose with very low toxicity to microorganisms. Use of this novel solvent enables a significant reduction of energy cost for ethanol production from non-food biomass. Thus, second-generation biofuel ethanol production is in sight of practical […]

Harvard University researchers have devised a catalyst that uses renewable electricity to electrochemically transform carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide (CO). CO is a key commodity used in a large number of industrial processes. For Haotian Wang, it’s the perfect raw material. Wang, a Fellow at the Rowland Institute at Harvard, and his research team have […]

Lets Recycle CO2!

December 6, 2017 | 3 Comments

Korea’s Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) research team has developed titanium dioxide-based photocatalyst with the highest efficiency in the world that converts carbon dioxide recycling it into methane. The result is expected to be applied to technologies to reduce and reuse carbon dioxide. The team’s titanium dioxide (TiO2) -based high efficiency photocatalyst […]
