Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A study developed jointly by Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) and the spin-off BeDimensional has identified a solution based on ruthenium particles and a solar-powered electrolytic system. Small ruthenium particles and a solar-powered system for water electrolysis can produce green hydrogen more efficiently and cheaply. The technology, developed in the context of the Joint-lab’s […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Surrey think efficient and cheap batteries that can also capture harmful CO2 emissions could be right around the corner, thanks to a new system that speeds up the development of catalysts for lithium – CO2 (Li-CO2) batteries. The tech relies on a new system that speeds up the development of catalysts for […]

Rice University engineers have created a device that “turns sunlight into hydrogen” with record-breaking efficiency. The device integrates next-generation halide perovskite semiconductors with electrocatalysts in a single, durable, cost-effective and scalable device. The press release believes the engineers have set a new standard for hydrogen technology. The device is factually a solar driven water splitting cell. […]

Ruhr-University Bochum scientists have demonstrated that cube-shaped cobalt oxide nanoparticles are more efficient than spherical ones. The new creates a path for the systematic design of cost-effective and efficient catalysts for green hydrogen. Previously researchers couldn’t determine whether spheres or cubes were the best. This has now changed following the development of a new method. […]

A Ruhr-University Bochum team has developed an efficient method for identifying promising candidates in the myriad of possible materials. Efficient electrocatalysts, which are needed for the production of green hydrogen, for example, are hidden in materials composed of five or more elements. To this end, the researchers combined experiments and simulation. High entropy alloys (HEAs) […]
