Carbon and nitrogen are essential elements of life. Some organisms take up key positions for the cycling of both of them […]

Nanyang Technological University researchers have devised a new less energy intensive method to make a key compound in nitrogen fertilizer, and that may pave the way to a more sustainable agricultural practice as global food demand rises. The method devised by NTU researchers produces a compound known as ‘urea’, which is a natural product found […]

Tokyo Institute of Technology scientists have found a way to synthesize a special type of perovskite that promotes the production of ammonia. Ammonia has key applications in fertilizer production and hydrogen energy. This new synthesis process can be carried out at temperatures immensely lower than that of traditional methods for the synthesis of perovskite-oxide materials […]

Case Western Reserve University researchers have come up with a new way to create ammonia from nitrogen and water at low temperature and low pressure. They’ve done it successfully so far in a laboratory without using hydrogen or the solid metal catalyst necessary in traditional processes. Ammonia, a compound first synthesized about a century ago, […]

Researchers from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and the Universidad Miguel Hernández of Elche have found the way to increase biomass production by using sewage sludge as energy crop fertilizers. The idea’s press release is getting international attention. Its not a new idea exactly. The City of Milwaukee Wisconsin has been the source of “Milorganite“, […]
