University of Illinois Grainger College of Engineering researchers are demonstrating next-generation energy technology using topology optimization and metal 3D printing to design ultra-compact, high-power heat exchangers (Most are commonly called radiators). Used in most major industries – including energy, water, manufacturing, transportation, construction, electronic, chemical, petrochemical, agriculture and aerospace – heat exchangers transfer thermal energy […]

Researchers at the University of Central Florida have designed for the first time a nanoscale material that can efficiently split seawater into oxygen and hydrogen. Hydrogen fuel derived from the sea could be an abundant and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, but the potential fuel source has been limited by technical challenges, including how to […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A Tohoku University research group has produced fresh insights about the release of oxygen in lithium-ion batteries, paving the way for more robust and safer high energy density batteries. As rechargeable batteries get more powerful, the chance of batteries overheating – thermal runaway – increases. Seeking a way to make batteries safer, researchers have […]

University of Michigan researchers have used machine learning to predict how the compositions of metal alloys and metal oxides affect their electronic structures. The finding could help pave the way toward cleaner fuels and a more sustainable chemical industry. The electronic structure is key to understanding how the material will perform as a mediator, or […]

Researchers have found carbon nanotubes woven into thread-like fibers and sewn into fabrics become a thermoelectric generator. The invisibly small carbon nanotubes aligned fibers can turn heat from the sun or other sources into other forms of energy. The Rice University lab of physicist Junichiro Kono led an effort with scientists at Tokyo Metropolitan University […]
