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 […]

Nagoya Institute of Technology scientists combined two promising photocatalysts to obtain higher solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency and durability in a water splitting cell. Both industry and academia have been focusing heavily on hydrogen as a feasible clean alternative fuel. Hydrogen is practically inexhaustible and when reacted to generate energy, only produces water vapor. However, to realize […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has announced a patented process for converting alcohol sourced from renewable or industrial waste gasses into jet or diesel fuel. The process is being scaled up at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory with the help of partners at Oregon State University and the carbon-recycling experts at LanzaTech. Two key technologies power […]

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) researchers have a breakthrough in technology that efficiently converts liquid ammonia into hydrogen. Their findings have also attracted significant attention from academic research communities owing to its new analysis protocol, capable of finding optimal process environments. In this study, the research team led by Professor Guntae Kim […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Penn State researchers report that they have taken a step toward overcoming the challenge of inexpensive hydrogen production. They report to have taken the step by using supercomputers to find materials that could help accelerate hydrogen separation when water is exposed to light, a process called photocatalysis. Using solar energy to inexpensively harvest hydrogen […]
