Uppsala University researchers have successfully produced microorganisms that can efficiently produce the alcohol butanol using carbon dioxide and solar energy. The researchers press release is optimistic that we will be able to replace fossil fuels with a carbon-neutral product created from solar energy, carbon dioxide and water. The researchers have published their study in the […]

University of Tsukuba researchers have developed a new system for evaporating the water from algae biomass with reusable nanoporous graphene, which can lead to cheaper, more environmentally friendly biofuels and fine chemicals. The team introduced a new procedure of harvesting energy and organic molecules from algae using nanoporous graphene and porous graphene foams. They have […]

New research at The University of Texas at Austin (UT) shows that injecting air and carbon dioxide into methane ice deposits buried beneath the Gulf of Mexico could unlock vast natural gas energy resources while helping fight climate change by trapping the carbon dioxide underground. The study, published in the journal Water Resources Research, used […]

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) chemists have developed an efficient process for converting carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, a key ingredient of synthetic fuels and other materials. At EPFL, this research is spearheaded by a team led by Professor Xile Hu at the Laboratory of Inorganic Synthesis and Catalysis (LSCI). The chemists have recently […]

Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) researchers leading an international collaboration have developed a two-step method to more efficiently break down carbohydrates into their single sugar components, a critical process in producing green fuel. The research group published their results in the American Chemical Society journal Industrial & Engineering Chemical Research. The breakdown process […]
