Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) researchers have now found that low-temperature aquifer thermal energy storage is of great potential in Germany. This potential is expected to grow in future due to climate change. Aquifer thermal energy storage systems can largely contribute to climate-friendly heating and cooling of buildings: Heated water is stored in the underground […]

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 […]

Arizona State University research shows a pathway toward full decarbonization of U.S. aviation fuel use by substituting conventional jet fuel with sustainably produced biofuels. The study found that planting the grass miscanthus on 23.2 million hectares of existing marginal agricultural lands – land that often lays fallow or is poor in soil quality – across […]

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 […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology scientists have successfully enhanced cultivation of a microorganism that can fix nitrogen (N2) while producing methane (CH4) and ammonia (NH3) and investigated exciting details of its metabolism. Carbon and nitrogen are essential elements of life. Some organisms take up key positions for the cycling of both of them […]
