Washington State University (WSU) researchers have found a way to make jet fuel from a common black fungus. The black fungus found in decaying leaves, soil and rotting fruit leads the researchers to hope the process will become an economically viable production process for aviation biofuels in the next five years. The team, led by […]

In a stunning development scientists at the University of Granada have a developed a carbon gel that enables carbon dioxide to be turned into hydrocarbons using a novel electro-catalytic process. After more than 10 years’ work researchers from the University of Granada (UGR) have developed a new material using doped carbon that allows low-cost fuel […]

Utah State University (USU) biochemists Zhi-Yong Yang and Lance Seefeldt, along with colleague Dennis Dean of Virginia Tech, discovered a molybdenum nitrogenase enzyme capable of converting carbon monoxide into usable hydrocarbons and may lead to motor fuel molecules. This is significant.  Al Fin found the press release and your writer is posting now that the […]

A research team including colleagues at UC Davis, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Shell Projects & Technology is offering a new computational study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals how hydrocarbons may be formed from methane deep in the Earth at extreme pressures and temperatures. The research is important for […]
