Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Texas at Austin researchers have found a low-cost way to solve one half of the water-splitting equation to produce hydrogen as clean energy – using sunlight to efficiently split off oxygen molecules from water. The finding represents a step forward toward greater adoption of hydrogen as a key part of our energy […]

University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences researchers have released information in four new studies that explore chemical-free pretreatment methods, development of high-throughput phenotyping methods, and commercial-scale techno-economic feasibility of producing fuel from energycane in various scenarios. The studies begin to answer that challenges remaining in processing the crops to extract fuel […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Technical University of Munich announced their work with an international research team has now made new findings regarding the role of water molecules in catalyzing chemical reactions. Using zeolites that are extremely porous materials, where ten grams can have an internal surface area the size of a soccer field, the cavities make them useful […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign scientists’ new catalyst produces hydrocarbons when CO2 and water react with the light driven catalyst. The researchers reported that small quantities of useful molecules such as hydrocarbons are produced when carbon dioxide and water react in the presence of light and the new silver nanoparticle catalyst. Their validation study – […]

Kobe University engineers have developed a technique to repartition carbon resources from carbohydrates to lipids in microalgae. They hope that this method can be applied to biofuel production. A cross-institutional collaboration developed the technique to repartition carbon resources from carbohydrates to lipids in microalgae. This discovery was the result of a collaboration between a research […]
