Harvard researchers have developed an improved system to use renewable electricity to reduce carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide to recycle carbon dioxide. Imagine a day when – rather than being spewed into the atmosphere – the gases coming from power plants and heavy industry are instead captured and fed into catalytic reactors that chemically transform […]

Scientists at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have designed a solution for transforming hydrogen gas into a less flammable liquid fuel that can be safely stored and transported and then returned to the gas state. The new technology has another application – the technology could be used with atmospheric carbon dioxide to synthesize a […]

Researchers at the TLL (Thueringian regional institute for agriculture), the DBFZ (German biomass research center) and the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (UFZ) think now that from a total of 30 million tons of cereal straw produced annually in Germany, between 8 and 13 million tons of it could be used sustainably for energy or […]

Wojciech Lipiński, Dr. Sc.Techn, said at the National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) of recycling carbon dioxide (CO2), “It may seem like trying to put the genie back into the bottle. But it already has been proven with laboratory scale equipment. The process uses three of the worlds most abundant and […]

A team of researchers at the Joint BioEnergy Institute, University of California, Berkeley, and Technical University of Denmark set out to identify the enzymes that catalyze the production of galactan.  Their new study published in the journal The Plant Cell reveals a novel enzyme involved in the production of galactans. The enzyme may be used […]
