Stockholm University scientists have created crystals with micropores that capture carbon dioxide much more efficiently than previously known materials, even in the presence of water. The new mater is sure to cheer up the global warming crowd while the rest of us are pleased to see another resource to harvest CO2 . The Stockholm University […]

When University of Oregon scientists began making tiny organic circular structures using carbon atoms, the idea was to improve carbon nanotubes for use in electronics or optical devices. Researchers now show that these cycloparaphenylenes can be made using a variety of atoms, not just those from carbon. In a new paper, Ramesh Jasti and five […]

Chalmers University researchers have discovered that a certain bed material improves the combustion efficiency of waste and biomass. The material decreases operating and maintenance costs significantly. In collaboration with the energy supplier Eon, the researchers have proven the concept in today’s commercial boilers. The Chalmers team’s findings make combined heat and power (CHP) technology much […]

Sandia National Laboratories researchers seeking to make hydrogen a less expensive fuel for cars have upgraded a water splitting catalyst nearly as cheap as dirt – molybdenum disulfide. Known as ‘molly’ for short, molly may well replace for platinum, a rare element that has the highest price of all the metals. The Sandia induced changes […]

A new fracturing fluid has been created that may increase the ability to develop geothermal energy.  New Mexico State University (NMSU) Assistant Professor Kenneth C. Carroll and his researchers have created a new fracturing fluid that may increase the development of geothermal energy. Carroll is a member of a group that has published two papers […]
