Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers can make methane from captured CO2 and renewably sourced hydrogen. The method converts captured carbon dioxide (CO2) into methane, the primary component of natural gas. The process offers recycling CO2 back into natural gas and a good way to store renewable energy sourced hydrogen. It would mean a short planetary […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Tokyo scientists have invented a new kind of concrete could reduce emissions from the construction industry. Called calcium carbonate concrete it’s made from waste concrete and carbon dioxide from the air or recycled industrial exhaust gases. It shows promise as a future construction material, especially in places where natural resources are limited. […]

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 […]

Scientists at Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory reported that they have made a new catalyst that works with either heat or electricity. Based on nickel atoms, the catalyst accelerates a reaction for turning carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide – the first step in making fuels and useful chemicals from […]

Scientists at Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena have succeeded in splitting water using an electrocatalyst instead of electrolysis. The way in which a compound inspired by nature produces hydrogen has now been described in detail by an international research team from the University of Jena, Germany and the University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy. These findings are the foundation for […]
