Scientists at Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory reported that they have made a new catalyst that works with either heat or electricity. Based on nickel atoms, the catalyst accelerates a reaction for turning carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide – the first step in making fuels and useful chemicals from […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ohio State University researchers show in a new study that a single material, a layered crystal consisting of the elements rhenium and silicon, turns out to be the gold standard of transverse thermoelectric devices. Thermoelectric power generators that make electrical power from waste heat would be a useful tool to reduce greenhouse gas emissions […]

A Pohang University research team proposes a new direction for designing highly efficient spin Seebeck-based thermoelectric devices. The POSTECH joint research team – led by Professor Hyungyu Jin and Ph.D. candidate Min Young Kim of the Department of Mechanical Engineering with Professor Si-Young Choi of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering – has succeeded […]

Washington State University researchers have developed an innovative way to convert plastics to ingredients for jet fuel and other valuable products, making it easier and more cost effective to reuse plastics. During the reaction the researchers were able to convert 90% of the plastic to jet fuel and other valuable hydrocarbon products within an hour […]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have uncovered an extraordinary self-improving property that transforms an ordinary semiconductor into a highly efficient and stable artificial photosynthesis device. Three years ago, scientists at the University of Michigan discovered an artificial photosynthesis device made of silicon and gallium nitride (Si/GaN) that harnesses sunlight into carbon-free hydrogen for fuel cells […]
