An Earlham Institute new study shows theMiscanthus genus of grasses can be grown in lower agricultural grade conditions – such as marginal land – due to their remarkable resilience and photosynthetic capacity at low temperatures. Some grasses are a sustainable energy source that could be a driving force towards achieving net zero carbon emissions, according […]

A new University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign study introduced an electrochemical reaction, enhanced by polymers, to improve CO2-to-ethylene conversion efficiency over previous attempts. For years, researchers have worked to repurpose excess atmospheric carbon dioxide into new chemicals, fuels and other products traditionally made from hydrocarbons harvested from fossil fuels. The recent push to mitigate the […]

Researchers at The City College of New York (CCNY), inspired by nature, can now demonstrate a synthetic strategy to stabilize bio-inspired solar energy harvesting materials. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Chemistry, could be a significant breakthrough in functionalizing molecular assemblies for future solar energy conversion technologies. In almost every corner of the world, […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) researchers have demonstrated a room-temperature method that could significantly reduce carbon dioxide levels in fossil-fuel power plant exhaust, one of the main sources of carbon emissions in the atmosphere and make it available for CO2 recycling. Although the researchers demonstrated this method in a small-scale, highly controlled […]

Chemists at the University of Bayreuth have developed a material where carbon dioxide (CO2) can be specifically separated from industrial waste gases, natural gas, or biogas, and thereby made available for CO2 recycling. The separation process is both energy efficient and cost-effective. In the journal Cell Reports Physical Science the researchers present the structure and […]
