The Ames Laboratory at Iowa State University has announced a new hybrid catalyst that converts carbon dioxide into ethylene in one pot. The catalyst was developed by scientists from Ames National Laboratory, Iowa State University, University of Virginia, and Columbia University. This catalyst supports the world net-zero carbon initiative by using carbon dioxide (CO2) recycling […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Cambridge researchers have developed a solar energy powered system that can transform plastic waste and greenhouse gases into sustainable fuels and other valuable products. The system can convert two waste streams into two chemical products at the same time. Its likely to be the first time this has been achieved in a […]

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 […]

A study led by researchers at the Center for Advanced Bioenergy and Bioproducts Innovation (CABBI) improves understanding of leaf functional relationships and provides valuable new information for scientists modeling the productivity of C4 bioenergy crops. The research team found that miscanthus and sorghum – both C4 plant species – occupy a distinct niche of the […]

University of Würzburg scientists have made progress on the path to sunlight-driven production of hydrogen. The chemists present a new enzyme-like molecular catalyst for water oxidation. The team’s research paper has been published in Nature Catalysis. Hydrogen is considered by some as a promising alternative to fossil fuels. It can be produced from water using […]
