University of Michigan researchers can show how solar-powered synthesis gas could recycle carbon dioxide into fuels and useful chemicals. Zetian Mi, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan (U-M) who led an international team of researchers said, “If we can generate syngas from carbon dioxide utilizing only solar energy, we […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory biofuel scientists used an oddball molecule made by bacteria to develop a new class of sustainable biofuels powerful enough to launch rockets. The candidate molecules have greater projected energy density than any petroleum product, including the leading aviation and rocket fuels, JetA and RP-1. Converting petroleum into fuels involves mostly […]

Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) engineers reports they have developed a catalyst by adding a flat platinum interface to NiFe-layered double hydroxide (LDH). The new catalyst increases hydrogen production efficiency and displays 11.2 times higher activity than conventional catalysts. Ang butter bread, made by layering butter and red bean spread, creates a new […]

Washington State University researchers used the ethanol and water mixture and a small amount of electricity in a novel conversion system to produce pure compressed hydrogen. The researcher’s press release claims the new efficient way to produce hydrogen gas from ethanol and water has the potential to make clean hydrogen fuel a more viable alternative […]

Researchers from ETH Zürich and Paul Scherrer Institute have found how methanol, produced from carbon dioxide recycled from the air, can be used to make carbon neutral fuels. To do this, the mechanism by which methanol is turned into liquid hydrocarbons must be better understood so that the catalytic process can be optimized. The researchers […]
