Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The next generation of sustainable energy technology might be built from some low-tech materials: rocks and the sun. Using a new approach known as concentrated solar power, heat from the sun is stored then used to dry foods or create electricity. The School of Materials, Energy, Water and Environmental Sciences (MEWES), Nelson Mandela African […]

Shibaura Institute of Technology scientists have developed a faster more efficient way to synthesize CoSn(OH)6, a powerful catalyst required for high-energy lithium air batteries. The research paper has been published in the journal Sustainable Energy & Fuels. CoSn(OH)6 (CSO) is an effective oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalyst, necessary for developing next-generation lithium air batteries. However, […]

An Argonne National Laboratory team has developed a new catalyst composed of elements abundant in the Earth. It could make possible the low-cost and energy-efficient production of hydrogen for use in transportation and industrial applications. The reporting paper for the research has been published in Science. Hydrogen can power vehicles while emitting nothing but water. […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Cambridge researchers have demonstrated how carbon dioxide can be captured from industrial processes – or even directly from the air – and transformed into clean, sustainable fuels using just the energy from the Sun. The report describing the research has been published in the journal Joule. The research team developed a solar-powered […]

Professor Won Bae Kim and his team at Korea’s POSTECH utilize electron spin of anode material to boost capacity and accelerate charging in lithium-ion batteries. The paper reporting the advance has been published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials. The research was recognized for its excellence and was published as a front cover paper in […]
