A team at Texas A&M University consisting of Dr. Abdoulaye Djire, assistant professor, and graduate student Denis Johnson, has furthered a method to produce ammonia through electrochemical processes. The research aims to replace the Haber-Bosch thermochemical process with an electrochemical process that is more sustainable and safer for the environment. Ammonia is commonly used in […]

Researchers at Stockholm University have for the first time been able to study the surface of a copper-zinc catalyst when carbon dioxide is reduced to methanol. A better knowledge of the catalytic process and the possibility of finding even more efficient materials opens the door for a green transition in the chemical industry. The researchers […]

Japan’s National Institute for Materials Science scientists have developed a new approach to the design of thermoelectric materials. They have constructed a database of electronic structure parameters correlated with materials’ thermoelectric conversion properties and by a comprehensive analysis of the database. This approach can be used to develop higher performance thermoelectric materials. The team’s research […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed a desalination system that is more efficient and less expensive than previous methods. In addition to providing fresh water, the process could be used to treat contaminated wastewater or generate steam for sterilizing medical instruments, all without requiring a power source other than sunlight. An estimated two-thirds of […]

University of East Anglia research shows that fuel poverty makes people’s physical and mental health worse. Researchers found that not being able to keep homes warm enough affects people’s levels of life satisfaction. But they also found that it impacts people’s physical health by causing higher levels of inflammation, measured by fibrinogen, a blood-based biomarker. […]
