Bio Diesel leader Valero Energy Corp has been joined by other big oil firms Marathon Petroleum Corp., Phillips 66 and HollyFrontier in developing new projects designed to produce what’s been dubbed bio diesel or “renewable diesel,” a second-generation fuel made from animal fat that’s almost chemically identical to the petroleum form and offers the same […]

A technology developed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and scaled up by Vertimass LLC to convert ethanol into fuels suitable for aviation, shipping and other heavy-duty applications can be price-competitive with conventional fuels while retaining the sustainability benefits of bio-based ethanol, according to a new analysis. ORNL worked with technology […]

Research from the University of Illinois, the University of California, Davis and contributions from the Oregon Health and Science University has chemists one step closer to recreating nature’s most efficient machinery for generating hydrogen gas. This new development may help clear the path for the hydrogen fuel industry to move into a larger role in […]

University of Houston researchers have reported a significant breakthrough with a new oxygen evolution reaction catalyst that, combined with a hydrogen evolution reaction catalyst, achieved current densities capable of supporting industrial demands while requiring relatively low voltage to start seawater electrolysis. Seawater is one of the most abundant resources on earth, offering promise both as […]

Korea’s Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) researchers presented a new strategy for enhancing catalytic activity using tungsten suboxide as a single-atom catalyst (SAC). This strategy, which significantly improves hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in the metal platinum (pt) by 16.3 times, sheds light on the development of new electrochemical catalyst technologies. The research group’s […]
