A study led by researchers at the Center for Advanced Bioenergy and Bioproducts Innovation (CABBI) improves understanding of leaf functional relationships and provides valuable new information for scientists modeling the productivity of C4 bioenergy crops. The research team found that miscanthus and sorghum – both C4 plant species – occupy a distinct niche of the […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Coming up with the minerals for producing and using energy and fuels will require a wide range of critical metals. One of these rare earth elements, tellurium for example, is gaining in popularity for use in photovoltaics, or solar panels. As global demand for solar panels continues to increase, so is the need for […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Nanyang Technological University scientists have developed a low-cost device that can harness energy from wind as gentle as a light breeze and store it as electricity. When exposed to winds with a velocity as low as two meters per second (m/s), the device can produce a voltage of three volts and generate electricity power […]

A Pohang University of Science & Technology research team succeeded in developing an anode-free lithium battery. The design maximized energy density and improved energy density by 40%. The Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) research team led by Professor Soojin Park and PhD candidate Sungjin Cho (Department of Chemistry) in collaboration with Professor Dong-Hwa […]

University of Würzburg scientists have made progress on the path to sunlight-driven production of hydrogen. The chemists present a new enzyme-like molecular catalyst for water oxidation. The team’s research paper has been published in Nature Catalysis. Hydrogen is considered by some as a promising alternative to fossil fuels. It can be produced from water using […]
