Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology researchers have succeeded in cultivating a ‘miracle microbe’ in the laboratory enabling them to describe exactly how the microbe achieves the oil to methane gas transformation. They also discovered that it prefers to eat rather bulky chunks of food. Microorganisms can convert oil into natural gas, i.e. methane. […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers can make methane from captured CO2 and renewably sourced hydrogen. The method converts captured carbon dioxide (CO2) into methane, the primary component of natural gas. The process offers recycling CO2 back into natural gas and a good way to store renewable energy sourced hydrogen. It would mean a short planetary […]

North Carolina State University researchers have developed what is, to date, the most efficient means of converting sewage sludge and restaurant grease into natural gas. The team’s research paper has been published in the journal Water Research. After treating sewage, wastewater treatment plants are left with solid sludge, called biosolids. For years, utilities have treated […]

But is it natural gas or carbon dioxide or perhaps helium or sulfur dioxide? Kyushu University researchers used an automated method to create a high-resolution map of the seismic velocity below the seafloor where they found a large-scale gas reservoir in an area where the Earth’s upper layers are being separated. This reservoir, the first […]

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 […]
