Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Michigan researchers assert their new lithium metal technology could double the output of today’s lithium ion cells, drastically extending electric vehicle ranges and time between cell phone charges without taking up any added space. Note as you read along this technology is using the earlier lithium metal technology that predates the current […]

Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology researchers led by Professor Su-Il In from Department of Energy Science and Engineering have developed high-efficiency photocatalysts that convert carbon dioxide into methane or ethane with graphene-covered reduced titanium dioxide. The finding is expected to be utilized in the carbon dioxide reduction and recycling industries. Thanks to the […]

University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers have identified two changes to a single gene that can make the yeast tolerate the pretreatment chemicals. Some chemicals used in pretreatment to speed up the breakdown of plants for production of biofuels like ethanol are poisonous to the yeasts that turn the plant sugars into fuel. Researchers from the University […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Binghamton University researchers have created a biodegradable, paper-based battery that is more efficient than previously possible. It may be that batteries of the future may be made out of paper. The idea is a stretch, but for years there has been excitement in the scientific community about the possibility of paper-based batteries as an […]

Tokyo Institute of Technology scientists have addressed one of the major disadvantages of all-solid-state batteries by developing batteries with a low resistance at their electrode/solid electrolyte interface. The fabricated batteries showed excellent electrochemical properties that greatly surpass those of traditional and ubiquitous Li-ion batteries; thereby, demonstrating the promise of all-solid-state battery technology and its potential […]
