Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have discovered that recycling carbon dioxide into valuable chemicals and fuels can be economical and efficient using a new a single copper catalyst. And Link√∂ping University researchers have now taken an important step towards a method to convert water and carbon dioxide to the renewable energy of the future, using the […]

University of Houston (UH) and Toyota Research Institute of America researchers have innovated a promising new version of high-energy magnesium batteries. With a chloride-free electrolyte and organic cathode boosting energy density and stability the potential applications range from electric vehicles to battery storage for renewable energy systems. The battery, about which the research paper published […]

For the fields of energy and fuels it has been a very good year. The current mainstay of energy, oil and gas, has been quite good for consumers this past year. The U.S. oil and gas industry has shown how impressive, even in the midst of prices actually a bit too low, that enterprise, research, […]

DOE/Argonne National Laboratory scientists have identified a new catalyst that uses only about a quarter as much platinum as current technology by maximizing the effectiveness of the available platinum. The Argonne chemists have published their study results in the journal Science. Platinum is a precious metal more rare than silver or gold. Renowned in the […]

University of California – Berkeley researchers have developed a cheap and effective new catalyst can generate hydrogen fuel from water just as efficiently as platinum. Platinum is currently the best and most expensive water-splitting catalyst known. The new catalyst, which is composed of nanometer-thin sheets of metal carbide, is manufactured using a self-assembly process that […]
