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 […]

Beer Byproduct being used by researchersTo Create New Battery

Breweries’ sugary wastewater is great for creating fungus-powered fuel cells, it is said. University of Colorado Boulder researchers have converted brewery wastewater into battery power. The process uses biological organisms cultivated in the water to make the carbon-based materials required to create cells that store energy. According to those involved in the recent study, the […]
