For machines with mechanical elements, friction is an unavoidable enemy. It is a major source of service failure and can reduce […]

Chalmers University of Technology scientists have pioneered a recycling method that is inspired by the natural carbon cycle and could eliminate the climate impact of plastic materials. Can replace fossil raw materials Henrik Thunman, Professor of Energy Technology at Chalmers University of Technology and one of the authors of the study published in the Journal […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is suggesting triple-pane windows conserve energy, reduce noise, and lower home energy bills now that they are getting more affordable. Next generation triple-pane windows provide builders with lower cost options and help homeowners conserve energy, reduce noise, and lower home energy bills. “It’s time to make the switch to triple-pane windows.” […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed a desalination system that is more efficient and less expensive than previous methods. In addition to providing fresh water, the process could be used to treat contaminated wastewater or generate steam for sterilizing medical instruments, all without requiring a power source other than sunlight. An estimated two-thirds of […]

A new Massachusetts Institute of Technology study reveals why some attempts to convert and recycle carbon dioxide into fuel have failed, and offers possible solutions. If researchers could find a way to chemically convert carbon dioxide and recycle it into fuels or other products, they might make the current carbon dioxide cycle a real time […]
