Breakthrough in hydrogen fuel production could revolutionize alternative energy market
A team of Virginia Tech researchers has discovered a way to extract large quantities of hydrogen from any plant, a breakthrough that has the potential to bring a low-cost, environmentally friendly fuel source ...
Research pair finds global warming matched predictions from 1990
New simulation shows disk anomalies around stars may not be planets after all
Regional insights set latest study of climate history apart
(Phys.org) —As climate studies saturate scientific journals and mainstream media, with opposing viewpoints quickly squaring off in reaction and debate, new findings can easily be lost in the noise.
Climate change effect on release of CO2 from peat far greater than assumed
Climate change effect on release of CO2 from peat far greater than assumed Drought causes peat to release far more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than has previously been realised.
Researchers observe new type of ice forms between layers of graphene oxide
Engineer hopes to improve carbon-capture with patented technology
(Phys.org) —Less than a year after patenting a process that could improve stripping greenhouse gasses from industrial emissions, a University of Alabama engineering professor was recently granted another ...
Anesthetic gases heat climate as much as 1 million cars
When doctors want their patients asleep during surgery they gently turn the gas tap. But Anaesthetic gasses have a global warming potential as high as a refrigerant that is on its way to being banned in the ...
Climate: Meat turns up the heat
Eating meat contributes to climate change, due to greenhouse gasses emitted by livestock. New research finds that livestock emissions are on the rise and that beef cattle are responsible for far more greenhouse gas emissions ...
Astronomers suggest new telescopes could detect biomarker gasses in exoplanet atmospheres
Environmental group measures methane seeps in the Arctic
Cleaner, more efficient ways to deliver goods in Europe's cities
Urban freight transport is a major contributor to traffic congestion in Europe's cities. This in turn slows down deliveries, leading to increased costs for freight transporters and longer wait times for their ...

Turning tyres into gas for energy and new, valuable materials
Europe's tyre waste production is 3 million tonnes per year. Currently 65% to 70% of used tyres end up in landfills. Not only are they causing environmental damage, but a loss of added value in the form of ...
