Researchers at the University of California Riverside, Bourns College of Engineering, have developed a new way to make lithium ion batteries using a material found in Silly Putty that will last three times longer between charges compared to the current industry standard. The Silly Putty material, silicon dioxide (SiO2), is also found in surgical tubing […]

Back on May 6th, Lawrenceville Plasma Physics and the Focus Fusion Society launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in an attempt to harness commercial fusion power using Eric Lerner’s theories on temperature and compression in a controlled plasma emission. Simply put – the research is proving out. The money needed is running out. The Focus Fusion […]

New catalysts are coming to remove oxygenated compounds from bio-derived oils. Biofuels produced from waste agricultural or forestry material are particularly desirable because they avoid diverting resources from the production of food crops. But, oils produced by high-temperature treatment of these waste materials contain a large amount of oxygenated compounds that result in undesirable properties […]

Aviation and certain other transportation sectors are likely to continue to require liquid hydrocarbon fuels in the long term even as light duty transportation shifts to alternative energy sources. Professor George Huber leads a multi-university team that has addressed challenges of introducing advanced biofuels in the transportation pool through the concerted development of technology designed […]

Researchers from seven EU countries have concluded that we can feel safe both in electric-powered cars and in those powered by hydrogen, petrol and diesel. None of them exposes passengers to higher electromagnetic fields than those recommended in international standards. In fact, field intensity is well below the recommended value. The study is currently the […]
