Shibaura Institute of Technology researchers recently investigated the possibility of storing liquid fuel within polymeric gel networks, preventing their fast evaporation, and demonstrating good combustion performance. Liquid fuels with high energy density, though used worldwide, are dangerous to transport and store owing to their volatility, which produces explosive gas mixtures. The Institute’s researchers’ work suggests […]

University of East Anglia’s new research shows that fuel poverty makes people’s physical and mental health worse. With the U.S. administration canceling pipelines, cutting of oil and gas property leasing, pressuring finance not to loan or invest has already pressured petroleum products’ pricing way up.

The study, set in Singapore, conducted by Associate Professor Alberto Salvo from the Department of Economics at the National University […]

Each year, wind turbines are responsible for the death of uncountable hundreds of thousands of airborne animals such as birds and bats. To find a constructive way out of this ”green-green” dilemma, companies building and running wind turbines might have to work together with environmental experts and conservationists. Yet a lack of trust between them […]

A University of Michigan researcher group has developed a solution that could provide more efficient, more personalized comfort, completely doing away with the wall-mounted thermostats we’re accustomed to. The study paper describes a Human Embodied Autonomous Thermostat, or “HEAT,” that is detailed in the study published in Building and Environment. As lockdown requirements ease, COVID-19 […]
