Wake Forest University scientists have created a new chemical process that does in the lab what trees do in nature, convert carbon dioxide into usable chemicals or fuels. The research paper describing the new chemical process “Colloidal Silver Diphosphide Nanocrystals as Low Overpotential Catalysts for CO2 Reduction to Tunable Syngas,” has been published online in […]

An International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) researcher has proposed using a combination of Mountain Gravity Energy Storage (MGES) and hydropower as a solution for long term energy storage. The background for these work is the storage of energy for long periods of time is subject to special challenges. Batteries are rapidly becoming less […]

University of Maryland researchers have demonstrated a successful prototype of one critical component for affordable small-scale desalination: an inexpensive solar evaporator, made of wood. About a billion people around the world lack access to safe drinking water. Desalinating salty water into drinkable water can help to fill this dangerous gap. But traditional desalination systems are […]

Swansea University scientists suggest that almost a third of the natural gas fueling UK homes and businesses could be replaced by hydrogen, a carbon free fuel, without requiring any changes to the nation’s boilers and ovens. The point is to cut back on carbon emissions. Over time such a move could cut UK carbon dioxide […]

Working quietly Lockheed Martin has obtained a patent associated with its design for a potentially revolutionary compact fusion reactor (CFR). The patent, about part of the confinement system, or embodiment, is dated Feb. 15, 2018. In the process from the famed defense contractor it had filed a provisional claim on April 3, 2013 and a […]
