Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Illinois at Chicago researchers report new research showing that a number of 2D materials, when incorporated into experimental lithium-air batteries as the catalyst, enabled a battery to hold up to 10 times more energy than lithium-air batteries containing traditional catalysts. Lithium-air batteries are poised to become the next revolutionary replacement for currently […]

Korea’s Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) researchers have fabricated nano-sized catalysts that could improve the performance and production of clean energy fuel cells. The team’s study results have been published in the journal of Applied Catalysis B: Environmental. Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) transform the chemical energy produced during a reaction […]

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) researchers are describing a newly discovered stabilizing effect of an underappreciated 1983 finding that variations in plasma temperature can influence the growth of magnetic islands that lead to disruption of fusion plasmas.  The discovery could help scientists seeking to bring the fusion reaction that powers the sun and stars to […]

Politecnico di Torino engineers have developed an innovative, low-cost technology to turn seawater into drinking water using solar energy alone. According to FAO estimates, by 2025 nearly 2 billion people may not have enough drinking water to satisfy their daily needs. One of the possible solutions to this problem is desalination, treating seawater to make […]

Kanazawa University scientists have developed a method to sort molecules of carbon monoxide from carbon dioxide. This development may prove very helpful in recycling CO2 and expanding the field of producing alternative fuels. So, how do you separate carbon dioxide from carbon monoxide? One way, showcased in a new study from the Kanazawa scientists published […]
