SheerWind claims its INVELOX wind turbine produces 600% more power
New CO2-removing catalyst can take the heat
(Phys.org) -- The current method of removing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) from the flues of coal-fired power plants uses so much energy that no one bothers to use it. So says Roger Aines, principal ...
Green gasoline comes closer to fueling your car
The backbone of our energy infrastructure is carbon-based fuel. In the form of oil, coal and natural gas, carbon compounds run our cars, heat our homes and cook our food. For reasons of energy security and ...
Tackling mysteries about carbon, possible oil formation and more deep inside Earth
How do diamonds the size of potatoes shoot up at 40 miles per hour from their birthplace 100 miles below Earth's surface? Does a secret realm of life exist inside the Earth? Is there more oil and natural gas ...
