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 […]

Awesome Mini Generator Extracts Energy From Saltwater

Where freshwater and saltwater meet, you get energy. Where freshwater meets saltwater, Aleksandra Radenovic sees a wold of untapped renewable energy. Radenovic is a nanoscientist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, and today she published the schematics of a brand new type of flat, membrane-like power generator. The generator siphons energy from the process […]

Everything You Should Know About Nuclear Fusion, Explained in just a few Minutes

A colorful primer on one power source that maybe could change everything as we know it in power production. Fusion power is the holy grail of energy production. Short of building some sort of Dyson sphere around the sun, it’s the cleanest, most efficient source of power we could hope to achieve. The only catch […]

Why Samsung’s Note 7 crisis could soon assist in solving the problem of poor battery life

The recall could provide researchers with a huge batch of potentially faulty batteries that could be tested to improve battery technology in the years ahead Most accidents caused by smartphones are caused by distracted drivers or pedestrians. But a phone that bursts into flames – as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7s have been doing – comes […]

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 […]

One of world’s largest solar plants plan to produce …You guessed it.. oil

A rendering of the 36 glass modules containing the solar-powered steam flooding system being built in Oman. In a real case of strange bedfellows, one of the largest solar plants in the world is being built in Oman to boil water for use in oil production rather than to generate electricity. The plant, dubbed Miraah […]

‘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 […]
