Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The Caltech Space Solar Power Project (SSPP) prototype launched into orbit, dubbed the Space Solar Power Demonstrator (SSPD), will test several key components of an ambitious plan to harvest solar power in space and beam the energy back to Earth. Space solar power provides a way to tap into the practically unlimited supply of […]

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 […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago have built a machine that captures carbon from flue gas and converts it to ethylene. 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 […]

For the first time, an international team, including researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), research how and why new transmission lines can also lead to grids becoming more unstable rather than more stable, as would be expected. A sustainable energy supply requires the expansion of power grids. However, new transmission lines can also […]

Washington State University has announced a new method to treat sewage can efficiently convert leftover sludge to biogas, an advance that could help communities lower their waste treatment costs while helping the environment. Reporting in the journal, Waste Management, a Washington State University research team tested a pretreatment technology, adding an extra step to typical […]
