Washington State University researchers used the ethanol and water mixture and a small amount of electricity in a novel conversion system to produce pure compressed hydrogen. The researcher’s press release claims the new efficient way to produce hydrogen gas from ethanol and water has the potential to make clean hydrogen fuel a more viable alternative […]

Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) power electric vehicles and electronics. With the prevalence of these set to increase, efforts have been directed towards improving the performance and longevity of LIBs. Now […]

Researchers have successfully increased the lifespan and stability of solid-state lithium-ion batteries, creating a viable approach for future widespread usage. The researchers have successfully increased the lifespan and stability of solid-state lithium-ion batteries, creating a viable approach for future widespread usage with a design from the University of Surrey that means they are less likely […]

Argonne National Laboratory researchers have uncovered a new avenue for overcoming the performance decline that occurs with repeated cycling in the cathodes of sodium ion batteries. This discovery could find applications in batteries for transportation and the electric grid. Battery-powered vehicles have made a significant dent in the transportation market. But that market still needs […]

Texas A&M University scientists use quantum methods to predict Lithium-metal (Li-metal) batteries great potential for packing more significant amounts of energy than the current lithium-ion batteries. For example, a Li-metal electric battery in a car could travel more miles, and a Li-metal phone battery could have longer battery life. However, the metal surface of Li-metal […]
