Stanford University researchers have found a new way to convert carbon dioxide into the building block for sustainable liquid fuels. The new process was very efficient in tests and did not have the reaction that destroys a conventional device. The Stanford researchers have discovered a practical starting point for converting carbon dioxide recycling it back […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… North Carolina State University researchers have found a new to convert a temperature difference into an electrical voltage. This effect, which the researchers call ‘paramagnon drag thermopower,’ is a local thermal perturbations of spins in a solid that can convert heat to energy even in a paramagnetic material – where spins weren’t thought to […]

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have developed a promising new cathode and electrolyte system that replaces expensive metals and traditional liquid electrolyte with lower cost transition metal fluorides and a solid polymer electrolyte. The growing popularity of lithium-ion batteries in recent years has put a strain on the world’s supply of cobalt and nickel, two […]

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have developed a new platinum-based catalytic system that is far more durable than traditional commercial systems and has a potentially longer lifespan. The new system could, over the long term, reduce the cost of producing fuel cells. Platinum has long been used as a catalyst to enable the oxidation reduction […]

Rice University researchers have built a electrocatalysis reactor that recycles carbon dioxide to produce pure liquid fuel solutions using electricity. The scientists behind the invention hope it will become an efficient and profitable way to recycle and reuse CO2. The CO2 could be repurposed in an efficient and environmentally friendly way with the new electrolyzer […]
