Scientists Accidentally Discover Viable Process to Efficiently Turn CO2 Into Ethanol

The process is cheap, efficient, and scaleable, meaning it could soon be useful in removing large amounts of CO2 from our atmosphere. Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee have discovered a chemical reaction to turn CO2 into ethanol, potentially creating a new technology to help avert climate change. Their findings were published […]

Scientists Discover New Process Converting Waste Heat Into Usable Electricity

This new material could allow power plants to recycle their waste heat and improve their efficiency. A group of researchers have developed a new material that can be used to turn waste heat into electricity. This technology could allow power plants to recycle their waste heat and save money, while reducing our fossil fuel consumption […]

Recycled Grass Clippings Could Perhaps Heat Your Home

A British renewable energy company intends to use grass from abandoned fields and meadows as a fuel source. The gas that heats your home might come from the grass beneath your feet, at least if British renewable energy company Ecotricity is successful. Ecotricity, one of the world’s first renewable energy companies, is building a ‘green […]

Science is now One Step Closer to Using Algae for Bio-fuel

A breakthrough by a team of scientists makes algae a potentially viable source of biofuel. The world is trying to wean itself off of fossil fuels. It’s vital we reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible in the next few decades, and many countries, states, cities, businesses, and people are committing to that goal. […]
