University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering researchers new catalyst is one step closer to artificial photosynthesis. It is a system that, just like plants, would use renewable energy to convert recycle carbon dioxide (CO2) into stored chemical energy. By both capturing carbon emissions and storing energy from solar or wind power, the […]

Scientists at Rice University, the University of California, Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have completed a detailed analysis of more than 4 million zeolite absorbent minerals. The team determined that new materials could help electricity producers slash as much as 30 percent of the “parasitic energy” costs […]

The TU Darmstadt’s Institute for Energy Systems and Technology’s newly dedicated pilot plant will be utilized for investigating two new methods for CO2 capture that will allow nearly totally eliminating CO2 emissions and require virtually no additional energy input and entail only slight increases in operating costs. Known as carbon capture and storage or CCS […]
