A group of researchers at Uppsala University, led by Senior Lecturer Fikret Mamedov and Professor Stenbjörn Styring, have now made a discovery on hydrogen production from green algae. The team’s study paper has just appeared in the early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The new research fuels hope of […]

Duncan Wass explained a discovery that could speed an emerging effort to replace ethanol in gasoline with the substantially better biofuel additive called butanol at the 245th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society. In view of some experts regarding butanol as “the gasoline of the future” the report on this discovery holds […]

The Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has announced a system that converts natural gas using sunlight into the more energy-rich fuel called syngas.  The new system offers a 25% increase in available energy.

A view to the answer was presented at the 245th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), may surprise skeptics.  […]

Wojciech Lipiński, Dr. Sc.Techn, said at the National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) of recycling carbon dioxide (CO2), “It may seem like trying to put the genie back into the bottle. But it already has been proven with laboratory scale equipment. The process uses three of the worlds most abundant and […]
