University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Queensland University of Technology (QUT) researchers have announced a new design for solid-state hydrogen storage that could significantly reduce charging times. Hydrogen is gaining significant attention as an efficient way to store ‘green energy’ from renewables such as wind and solar. Compressed gas is the most common form of […]

A Northwestern University research team has designed and synthesized a new material with ultrahigh porosity and surface area for the storage of hydrogen and methane for fuel cell-powered vehicles. These gases are attractive clean energy alternatives to carbon dioxide-producing fossil fuels. The material is a type of a metal-organic framework (MOF) that can store significantly […]

Kumamoto University researchers have succeeded in developing a new catalyst that burns NH3 at a low temperature and produces N2. The results are expected to offer a carbon free fuel and increased renewable energy use. Ammonia (NH3) has attracted attention in recent years as a carbon-free fuel that does not emit carbon dioxide. For use […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have found a new solid protective coating material. Its an ultrathin layer of aluminum oxide, that’s solid, but can flow like a liquid instead of cracking. The solid oxide protective coating for metals can, when applied in sufficiently thin layers, deform as if it were a liquid, filling any cracks […]

A Waseda University research group has developed a hydrogen-carrying polymer, which can be molded as a tangible, safe, and compact plastic sheet. The Tokyo research group’s newly developed a polymer can store hydrogen in a light, compact and flexible sheet, and is safe to touch even when filled with hydrogen gas. Although research and development […]
