University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Queensland University of Technology (QUT) researchers have announced a new design for solid-state hydrogen storage that could significantly reduce charging times. Hydrogen is gaining significant attention as an efficient way to store ‘green energy’ from renewables such as wind and solar. Compressed gas is the most common form of […]

The University of Illinois Chicago researchers new system uses electrolysis to transform captured carbon dioxide gas into high purity ethylene, with other carbon-based fuels and oxygen as byproducts. Their reporting paper has been published in Cell Reports Physical Science. The discovery offers a way to convert 100% of carbon dioxide captured from industrial exhaust into […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have developed a fast and economical method of converting methane, or natural gas, into liquid methanol at ambient temperature and pressure. The method takes place under continuous flow over a photo-catalytic material using visible light to drive the conversion. To help observe how the process works and how selective it […]

Researchers at St John’s College, University of Cambridge designed devices made of readily available oxide and carbon-based materials that can produce clean hydrogen from water over weeks. The findings could help overcome one of the key issues in solar fuel production, where current earth-abundant light-absorbing materials are limited through either their performance or stability. The […]

  University of Michigan researchers can show how solar-powered synthesis gas could recycle carbon dioxide into fuels and useful chemicals. Zetian Mi, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan (U-M) who led an international team of researchers said, “If we can generate syngas from carbon dioxide utilizing only solar energy, we […]
