A liquid fuel, methanol offers the potential for industry to find an additional source to meet America’s energy needs.  The study has been published in the journal Nature Energy. The concentration of carbon dioxide […]

University of Waterloo scientists have created an ‘artificial leaf’ by inexpensively recycling and converting harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) into a useful alternative fuel. The new technology, outlined in a paper published in the journal Nature Energy, was inspired by the way plants use energy from sunlight to turn carbon dioxide into food. Yimin Wu, an […]
