Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Texas at Austin researchers have found a low-cost way to solve one half of the water-splitting equation to produce hydrogen as clean energy – using sunlight to efficiently split off oxygen molecules from water. The finding represents a step forward toward greater adoption of hydrogen as a key part of our energy […]

The approach, developed by scientists at Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Technology (DGIST), with colleagues in Korea and India is cost-effective and biocompatible, and can help charge […]

University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences researchers have released information in four new studies that explore chemical-free pretreatment methods, development of high-throughput phenotyping methods, and commercial-scale techno-economic feasibility of producing fuel from energycane in various scenarios. The studies begin to answer that challenges remaining in processing the crops to extract fuel […]

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 […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign scientists’ new catalyst produces hydrocarbons when CO2 and water react with the light driven catalyst. The researchers reported that small quantities of useful molecules such as hydrocarbons are produced when carbon dioxide and water react in the presence of light and the new silver nanoparticle catalyst. Their validation study – […]
