University of Michigan (UM) researchers can now show a diverse mix of species improves the stability and fuel-oil yield of algal biofuel systems, as well as their resistance to invasion by outsiders. There’s been a dearth of algae news for quite some time now and this is the very best kind of news. The UM […]

Swansea University scientists suggest that almost a third of the natural gas fueling UK homes and businesses could be replaced by hydrogen, a carbon free fuel, without requiring any changes to the nation’s boilers and ovens. The point is to cut back on carbon emissions. Over time such a move could cut UK carbon dioxide […]

Sweden’s Chalmers University researchers have developed new technologies that can be used to convert industrial plants to produce fossil-free heat, electricity, fuel, chemicals and other materials. The technical potential is enormous. By using only Sweden’s currently existing power plants, renewable fuels equivalent to 10 percent of the world’s aviation fuel could be produced. Now, after […]

A research group from the University of Turku, Finland, has discovered an efficient way for transforming solar energy into the chemical energy of biohydrogen through the photosynthesis of green algae that function as cell factories. Molecular hydrogen is regarded as one of the most promising energy carriers due to its high energy density and clean, […]

University of Exeter has pioneered a new technique to produce hydrogen from sunlight using a new photo-electrode. The photo-electrode is an electrode that absorbs light before initializing electrochemical transformations to extract the hydrogen from water. The newly invented photo-electrode is made from nanoparticles of the elements lanthanum, iron and oxygen. The researchers believe this new […]
