Scientists at Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory reported that they have made a new catalyst that works with either heat or electricity. Based on nickel atoms, the catalyst accelerates a reaction for turning carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide – the first step in making fuels and useful chemicals from […]

Scientists at Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena have succeeded in splitting water using an electrocatalyst instead of electrolysis. The way in which a compound inspired by nature produces hydrogen has now been described in detail by an international research team from the University of Jena, Germany and the University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy. These findings are the foundation for […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Texas at Austin researchers have found a low-cost way to solve one half of the water-splitting equation to produce hydrogen as clean energy – using sunlight to efficiently split off oxygen molecules from water. The finding represents a step forward toward greater adoption of hydrogen as a key part of our energy […]

University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences researchers have released information in four new studies that explore chemical-free pretreatment methods, development of high-throughput phenotyping methods, and commercial-scale techno-economic feasibility of producing fuel from energycane in various scenarios. The studies begin to answer that challenges remaining in processing the crops to extract fuel […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Technical University of Munich announced their work with an international research team has now made new findings regarding the role of water molecules in catalyzing chemical reactions. Using zeolites that are extremely porous materials, where ten grams can have an internal surface area the size of a soccer field, the cavities make them useful […]
