University of Sussex chemists have found a new use for the waste product of nuclear power. They are transforming an unused stockpile into a versatile compound which could be used to create valuable commodity chemicals as well as new energy sources. Depleted uranium (DU) is a radioactive by-product from the reaction process used to create […]

For the fields of energy and fuels it has been a very good year. The current mainstay of energy, oil and gas, has been quite good for consumers this past year. The U.S. oil and gas industry has shown how impressive, even in the midst of prices actually a bit too low, that enterprise, research, […]

In the lab of Fabrizio Carbone at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and their international colleagues, these physicists have now demonstrated experimentally the ability to coherently manipulate the wave function of a free electron down to the attosecond timescale. Attoseconds are 10 to the 18th of a second. The team also developed a theory […]

University of California – Irvine researchers assert that the United States could reliably meet about 80 percent of its electricity demand with solar and wind power generation. The ideas are about immense amounts of money and very likely, deeply understated. According to scientists at the University of California, Irvine; the California Institute of Technology; and […]

Manchester University scientists have revealed how arsenic molecules might be used to ‘fish out’ or clean up the most toxic elements from radioactive nuclear waste. This could be a breakthrough that could make the decommissioning industry even safer and more effective. If successful the method may reduce the public relations tension in fission driven nuclear […]
