A New Mexico State University (NMSU) surprise discovery of a biopolymer that was capturing and storing hydrogen may speed the transformation to hydrogen as a major fuel source in the future. They call the substance Hydromer and are working on commercializing the polymer as coating material. The new material would allow for low maintenance costs […]

At the Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMR) a research team led by the chemist Prof. Dr. Ingo Krossing has developed a new system for producing methanol that uses CO2 and hydrogen. Substituting methanol can for example, be used as an environmentally friendly alternative for gasoline.  The FMR team’s goal is to harness the power of […]

Javad Rafiee, a doctoral student in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has developed a new method for storing hydrogen at room temperature. Rafiee seems determined to play a key role in solving global dependency on fossil fuels.  The young man is one winner of the 2010 $30,000 Lemelson-MIT […]
