University of Adelaide’s Professor Shizhang Qiao and Associate Professor Yao Zheng from the School of Chemical Engineering led an international team that successfully split seawater without pre-treatment to produce green hydrogen. Professor Qiao said, “We have split natural seawater into oxygen and hydrogen with nearly 100 per cent efficiency, to produce green hydrogen by electrolysis, […]

A City University of Hong Kong research team has successfully mediated poor charge carrier transport at low voltage by adding phosphorus to a metal oxide catalyst. Metal oxides are a promising catalyst for photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting to produce hydrogen as an alternative fuel. However, their effectiveness is restricted at low voltage. Adding phosphorus reduced […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Cambridge researchers have developed a solar energy powered system that can transform plastic waste and greenhouse gases into sustainable fuels and other valuable products. The system can convert two waste streams into two chemical products at the same time. Its likely to be the first time this has been achieved in a […]

Arizona State University research shows a pathway toward full decarbonization of U.S. aviation fuel use by substituting conventional jet fuel with sustainably produced biofuels. The study found that planting the grass miscanthus on 23.2 million hectares of existing marginal agricultural lands – land that often lays fallow or is poor in soil quality – across […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology scientists have successfully enhanced cultivation of a microorganism that can fix nitrogen (N2) while producing methane (CH4) and ammonia (NH3) and investigated exciting details of its metabolism. Carbon and nitrogen are essential elements of life. Some organisms take up key positions for the cycling of both of them […]
