Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago have built a machine that captures carbon from flue gas and converts it to ethylene. The device integrates a carbon capture system with an ethylene conversion system for the first time. The system not only runs on electricity, but it also removes more carbon from the environment […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology scientists have successfully enhanced cultivation of a microorganism that can fix nitrogen (N2) while producing methane (CH4) and ammonia (NH3) and investigated exciting details of its metabolism. Carbon and nitrogen are essential elements of life. Some organisms take up key positions for the cycling of both of them […]

City University of Hong Kong researchers have announced two new hydrogen production catalysts based on mineral gel and ‘crystalline-amorphous’ dual-phase nano-aluminum alloy. In the first topic the researchers’ findings have been published in the scientific journal Nature Communications under the title “Two-dimensional mineral hydrogel-derived single atoms-anchored heterostructures for ultrastable hydrogen evolution”. The first author of […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Lawrence Berkeley National Lab scientists have measured the highest toughness ever recorded of any material. The discovery came while investigating a metallic alloy made of chromium, cobalt, and nickel. Not only is the metal exceptionally strong and ductile, its properties become enhanced as it gets colder. This runs counter to most other materials in […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Researchers at Universiteit van Amsterdam made an important step towards the production of fully biobased, rigid polyesters. The process replaces petroleum in the production of very strong and durable biobased plastics from building blocks that are already commercially available. In a recent paper published in Nature Communications, researchers at the Industrial Sustainable Chemistry group […]
