Fastest hydrogen battery ever stepping stone to hydrogen car?
Can cars run on formic acid? They just might one day, after what physical chemist Georgy Filonenko discovered in his dissertation. He developed a catalyst in which hydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2) can form ...
Dark-matter labs become subterranean centres for science
Deep beneath our feet, below mountains and mine shafts, a scientific transformation is taking place.
Nuclear techniques confirm unique biology of human eye lens
Age-related cataract and a reduction in the ability to focus (presbyopia) are very common vision problems in older people. New research from ANSTO has provided evidence to confirm the long life of an important ...
Things to know about California's plan to cut emissions
Here are some things to know about California Gov. Jerry Brown's new target for reducing carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.
California ramps up efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions
Building on California's ambitious effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions, Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday called on the state to further slash its carbon footprint over the next 15 years.
Artificial photosynthesis could help make fuels, plastics and medicine
The global industrial sector accounts for more than half of the total energy used every year. Now scientists are inventing a new artificial photosynthetic system that could one day reduce industry's dependence ...
Partially logged rainforests could be emitting more carbon than previously thought
Global carbon emissions from forests could have been underestimated because calculations have not fully accounted for the dead wood from logging.
Sunfire, Audi en route to synthetic fuel of future
Ocean bacteria get 'pumped up': Team discovers new factors impacting fate of sinking carbon
The ocean has been sucking up heat-trapping carbon dioxide (CO2) building up in our atmosphere—with a little help from tiny plankton. Like plants on land, these plankton convert CO2 into organic carbon ...
Graphene-based technique creates the smallest gaps in nanostructures
A new procedure will enable researchers to fabricate smaller, faster, and more powerful nanoscale devices ─ and do so with molecular control and precision. Using a single layer of carbon atoms, or graphene, ...
Interaction of carbon nanotubes and the blood-brain barrier
A paper published in Biomaterials studies the interaction of carbon nanotubes and the blood-brain barrier. It was carried by the Institute of Pharmaceutical Science at the King's College London. Elzbieta Pach a ...
Thawing permafrost feeds climate change
Carbon, held in frozen permafrost soils for tens of thousands of years, is being released as Arctic regions of the Earth warm and is further fueling global climate change, according to a Florida State University ...
Fishes' large carbon footprints to be included in seafood eco-labeling
A new study has led researchers to call for a review of seafood 'eco-labels', which currently exclude consideration of the substantial carbon footprint left by the seafood industry.
First carbon auction 'to help Australia meet pledge': government
Australia Thursday said its plan to pay polluters to reduce carbon emissions blamed for climate change was off to a good start and would help the nation become a "world leader" in meeting pledges to tackle ...
