University of Michigan engineers have designed new chemical reactor to make an important ingredient for plastics, adhesives, carpet fibers, household cleaners and more from natural gas. The idea could reduce manufacturing costs in a post-petroleum economy by millions of dollars. The research paper has been published in the journal Science. The reactor creates propylene, a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Illinois Institute of Technology research revealed a promising breakthrough in green energy. Their design is an electrolyzer device capable of converting carbon dioxide into propane in a manner that is both scalable and economically viable. The paper published in Nature Energy discusses the pioneering research. As the United States races toward its target of […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign chemists have successfully produced fuels using water, carbon dioxide and visible light through artificial photosynthesis. By converting carbon dioxide into more complex molecules like propane, green energy technology is now one step closer to using excess carbon dioxide to store solar energy – in the form of chemical bonds – […]

Imperial College London researchers have engineered the harmless gut bacteria E.coli to generate the first renewable bio-propane fuel. The Brits development is a step towards commercial production of biologically produced fuel that could one day provide an alternative to fossil fuels. Propane is an attractive source of fuel because it burns cleanly, is easy to […]

Out of Brigham Young University and The Scripps Research Institute has come a new method of converting raw natural gas to alcohol.  It more interesting than converting to alcohol will suggest. The team is using raw natural gas.  This is quite different from what is going out to market now.  The three main parts of […]
