The University of Delaware's Hong Li is part of a research team looking at how adding alum as an amendment to poultry litter reduces ammonia and greenhouse gas concentrations and emissions, specifically carbon dioxide, in ...
Computer calculations indicate the best places to look for nanowire catalysts to accelerate green reactions
A*STAR scientists have created a 'prospector's guide' to help researchers locate the best germanium–silicon nanowires for catalyzing important clean-energy reactions.
New projections of permafrost change in northern Alaska suggest far-reaching effects will come sooner than expected, scientists reported this week at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union.
In search of ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, engineers are investigating the feasibility of sequestering carbon dioxide in saltwater aquifers deep underground. New Penn State research suggests that cracks in abandoned ...
The world is about to go on a carbon diet. It won't be easy—or cheap.
Climate scientists Saturday welcomed a pact to battle global warming as a major political advance, but warned of a gaping hole—the lack of a detailed roadmap for cutting greenhouse gases that cause the problem.
Nearly 200 nations adopted the first global pact to fight climate change on Saturday, calling on the world to collectively cut and then eliminate greenhouse gas pollution but imposing no sanctions on countries that don't.
Lush and lofty, the big trees in a 520-acre forest gracing the vista of Mount Rainier are now doing double duty, in the first-ever carbon-capture program of its kind in the Pacific Northwest.
