University of Cambridge researchers have developed an efficient concept to recycle carbon dioxide into clean, sustainable fuels, without any unwanted by-products or waste. The researchers, from the University of Cambridge, have previously shown that biological catalysts, or enzymes, can produce fuels cleanly using renewable energy sources, but at low efficiency Their latest research has improved […]

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. […]

University at Buffalo researchers report harnessing the wonders of biology and chemistry to turn glucose (a type of sugar) into olefins (a type of hydrocarbon, and one of several types of molecules that make up gasoline). The project was led by biochemists Zhen Q. Wang at the University at Buffalo and Michelle C. Y. Chang […]

University of Georgia scientist Puneet Dwivedi’s research replaces petroleum-based aviation fuel with sustainable aviation fuel derived from a type of mustard plant. The study shows the plant oil can reduce carbon emissions by up to 68%. Dwivedi led a team that estimated the break-even price and life cycle carbon emissions of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) […]

The chip will let scientists study enzymes faster and more comprehensively than ever before. For much of human history, animals and plants were perceived to follow a different set of rules than […]
