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. […]

Scientists by chance Discover Efficient Process to Turn CO2 Into Ethanol

The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the 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 […]

Light and quantum dots turn plants into clean usable hydrogen as fuel

Scientists have been sprouting new ways to cleanly produce hydrogen as a fuel source Hydrogen is often touted as a clean fuel source, as its use in cars only produces water vapor as a byproduct. The truth is though, that producing hydrogen in the first place can often be a process that relies on natural […]

Will that be cash or car? Jaguar and Shell roll out in-car fuel payment app

The Jaguar XE supports the Shell mobile pay app Cashless payments have rolled out on phones and smartwatches, but up until now they hadn’t made it into cars. That’s set to change, thanks to a collaboration between Jaguar and Shell that allows drivers to pay for their fuel using the touchscreen in their car. Instead of […]


Malcolm Turnbull’s big spend on clean energy One billion dollars will be spent by the Government on clean and renewable energy. Courtesy ABC News24. Wind and solar have grown seemingly unstoppable. While two years of crashing prices for oil, natural gas, and coal triggered dramatic downsizing in those industries, renewables have been thriving. Clean energy […]

Gravity powered aircraft flies with no fuel

Former nuclear designer, Robert D. Hunt of Hunt Aviation Corp has come up with a new “gravity powered aircraft technology” that he claims can accomplish sustained fuel-less flight. Hunt has designed a new hybrid aircraft: a “gravity-powered aircraft” which is a fixed wing, ridged skin airplane made of lightweight and modern composite materials. By October […]
