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 […]

‘It’s the end of energy and transportation as we know it’: View info & video with Tony Seba here.

Changing the automotive industry ‘Mild hybridisation’ the way forward for manufacturers needing to build greener cars. Within just 15 years conventional energy production and transport will have been rendered obsolete by the revolution taking place in batteries, solar power and electric cars. The startling thesis by energy disruption guru and Stanford University lecturer Tony Seba has been around for […]

HYDROGEN POWERED CARS COULD BE THE FUTURE PREFERRED CHOICE

Now that car makers have demonstrated through hybrid vehicle success that consumers want less-polluting tailpipes, they are shifting even greener. In 2015, Toyota will roll out the first hydrogen fuel-cell car for personal use that emits only water. An article in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, explains […]

MICROBES TO PRODUCE HYDROGEN GAS FOR FUEL

Microbe Power as a Green Means to Hydrogen Production Science (June 1, 2010) — Scientists have been hard at work harnessing the power of microbes as an attractive source of clean energy. Now, Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University researcher Dr. Prathap Parameswaran and his colleagues have investigated a means for enhancing the efficiency of […]

MAKING HYDROGEN FROM WATER WITH A METAL CATALYST

Renewable Energy: Inexpensive Metal Catalyst Can Effectively Generate Hydrogen from Water Science (May 1, 2010) — Hydrogen would command a key role in future renewable energy technologies, experts agree, if a relatively cheap, efficient and carbon-neutral means of producing it can be developed. An important step towards this elusive goal has been taken by a […]

BACTERIA DOUBLES HYDROGEN PRODUCTION FOR FUEL

New Super Bacterium Doubles Hydrogen Gas Production ScienceDaily (Apr. 14, 2010) — Hydrogen gas is today used primarily for manufacturing chemicals, but a bright future is predicted for it as a vehicle fuel in combination with fuel cells. In order to produce hydrogen gas in a way that is climate neutral, bacteria are added to forestry […]
