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 […]

Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Chicago researchers have found a way to convert carbon dioxide into a usable energy source using sunlight. In a spectacular PR coup the Argonne lab managed to get major media attention, and the University of Illinois press lease even made Google news, but we’ll have a […]
