Researchers at the Leibniz Institute of Plasma Science and Technology are testing plasma formation in biomass and finding a promising method for the pretreatment of biomass. Producing biogas from the bacterial breakdown of biomass presents options for a greener energy future, but the complex composition of biomass comes with challenges. Cellulose and woody lignocellulose are […]

Case Western Reserve University researchers have come up with a new way to create ammonia from nitrogen and water at low temperature and low pressure. They’ve done it successfully so far in a laboratory without using hydrogen or the solid metal catalyst necessary in traditional processes. Ammonia, a compound first synthesized about a century ago, […]

Imagine building a machine so advanced and precise you need a supercomputer to help design it. That’s exactly what scientists and engineers in Germany did when building the Wendelstein 7-X experiment. The device, funded by the German federal and state governments and the European Union, is a type of fusion device called a stellarator. The […]

Blacklight Power has posted two more university validations to support its assertions that the firm is making hydrinos and the hydrinos make up a part of its new solid fuel. The first work comes from Auburn University’s professor Dr. Gilbert L. Crouse, Jr. who has prepared a paper describing the replication of Dr. Mill’s work […]

Dr. Randall Mills of Blacklight Power plans a demonstration a power production device that is expected to produce 10 MW of power in a one cubic foot sized module. The Blacklight Power announcement hasn’t garnered a huge following, but there is good cause to watch and encourage the enterprise’s continued efforts. Dr. Mills is without […]
