Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers can make methane from captured CO2 and renewably sourced hydrogen. The method converts captured carbon dioxide (CO2) into methane, the primary component of natural gas. The process offers recycling CO2 back into natural gas and a good way to store renewable energy sourced hydrogen. It would mean a short planetary […]

As a general rule, most catalyst materials deteriorate during repeated catalytic cycles – they age. One example increasing its performance is the mineral erythrite, a mineral compound comprising cobalt and arsenic oxides. Erythrite lends […]

Researchers at the University of Central Florida have designed for the first time a nanoscale material that can efficiently split seawater into oxygen and hydrogen. Hydrogen fuel derived from the sea could be an abundant and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, but the potential fuel source has been limited by technical challenges, including how to […]

Nagoya Institute of Technology scientists combined two promising photocatalysts to obtain higher solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency and durability in a water splitting cell. Both industry and academia have been focusing heavily on hydrogen as a feasible clean alternative fuel. Hydrogen is practically inexhaustible and when reacted to generate energy, only produces water vapor. However, to realize […]

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) researchers have a breakthrough in technology that efficiently converts liquid ammonia into hydrogen. Their findings have also attracted significant attention from academic research communities owing to its new analysis protocol, capable of finding optimal process environments. In this study, the research team led by Professor Guntae Kim […]
