Research leader Dorthe Bomholdt Ravnsbæk of the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at University of Southern Denmark pointed out, “The Na-ion battery is still under development, and researchers are working on increasing its service life, lowering its charging time and making batteries that can deliver many watts.” Now the race is on to develop […]

Scientists at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in Korea and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany have developed a new energy conversion and storage system using seawater for the cathode in a fuel cell. We’ve seen that sodium can serve as an alternative to lithium in rechargeable batteries. That’s because the reversible […]

Navy researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Materials Science and Technology Division have demonstrated a proof-of-concept of a novel technology developed for the recovery of carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen (H2) from seawater and converting it to a liquid hydrocarbon fuel. The Navy’s research team demonstrated sustained flight of a radio-controlled (RC) P-51 […]

The Nuclear Energy Institute announced a September telephone survey in a press release suggesting almost two thirds of U.S. adults favor the use of nuclear energy as one of the ways to provide electricity in the United States. This latest survey found that Americans strongly favoring nuclear energy outnumber those strongly opposed by a two-to-one […]

Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) are developing a process to extract carbon dioxide (CO2) and produce hydrogen gas (H2) from seawater.  Then they catalytically convert the CO2 and H2 into jet fuel by a gas-to-liquids process. The NRL effort has successfully developed and demonstrated technologies for the recovery of the CO2 and […]
