The University of Illinois Chicago researchers new system uses electrolysis to transform captured carbon dioxide gas into high purity ethylene, with other carbon-based fuels and oxygen as byproducts. Their reporting paper has been published in Cell Reports Physical Science. The discovery offers a way to convert 100% of carbon dioxide captured from industrial exhaust into […]

Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research, or KSTAR, scientists have succeeded in sustaining a plasma gas at 100 million kelvin for up to 20 seconds without experiencing significant instabilities. This result is thought to be a significant step forward in the development of a sustainable nuclear fusion reaction. The KSTAR team’s research paper has been published […]

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory researchers demonstrated an explanation of a paradox that could apply to all spherical tokamaks, thought to be cost-effective candidates to model a fusion pilot plant. The paradox startled scientists at the U.S Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) more than a dozen years ago. The more heat they […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have developed a fast and economical method of converting methane, or natural gas, into liquid methanol at ambient temperature and pressure. The method takes place under continuous flow over a photo-catalytic material using visible light to drive the conversion. To help observe how the process works and how selective it […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst recently announced that they have figured out how to engineer a biofilm that harvests the energy in evaporation and converts it to electricity. This biofilm has the potential to revolutionize the world of wearable electronics, powering everything from personal medical sensors to personal electronics. The development has […]
