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 Method to Turn CO2 Into Methane

The latest new catalyst can turn carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide into methane. Carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is at an all-time high, and it’s not enough for us to simply stop emitting more. In order to avoid the worst effects of climate change, we’ll have to start taking lots of CO2 out of the […]

Liquid hydrocarbon fuel created from CO2, water & sunshine in breakthrough one-step process

UTA researchers (L to R), Mohammad Fakrul Islam, Frederick MacDonnell, Wilaiwan Chanmanee and Brian Dennis, whose research is a first in producing usable liquid hydrocarbon fuel from sunlight, water and CO2 (Credit: UTA) As scientists look for ways to help remove excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, a number of experiments have focused on employing […]

Using Hydrogen To Enhance Lithium Ion Batteries

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists have found that lithium ion batteries operate longer and faster when their electrodes are treated with hydrogen. Lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are a class of rechargeable battery types in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging. The growing demand […]
