Austria's largest state said Thursday that 100 percent of its electricity is now generated using renewable sources of energy.
Refined by nature over a billion years, photosynthesis has given life to the planet, providing an environment suitable for the smallest, most primitive organism all the way to our own species.
For the last seven years, Yale PhD student Staff Sheehan has been working on splitting water. Now, a paper just published in Nature Communications reveals how one of the methods he and his team have uncovered for this process—using ...
Washington State University researchers have developed a new catalyst that could lead to making biofuels cheaply and more efficiently.
A future where electricity comes mostly from low-carbon sources is not only feasible in terms of material demand, but will significantly reduce air pollution, a study published in the today's Proceedings of the National Academy ...
(Phys.org) —Scientists have taken a major step forward in the production of hydrogen from water which could lead to a new era of cheap, clean and renewable energy.
Through an energy conversion process that mimics that of a tree, a University of Wisconsin-Madison materials scientist is making strides in renewable energy technologies for producing hydrogen.
Vast amounts of hot water from household appliances, businesses and factories gurgle down the drain every day, wasting not only H2O but also another precious resource: heat energy.
Researchers generate pressurised 'supercritical' steam, at the highest temperatures ever achieved using solar energy
(Phys.org) —Supercritical steam is a breakthrough for solar energy and means that one day the sun could be used to drive the most advanced power stations in the world, currently only driven by coal or gas.
(Phys.org) —Recycling waste materials into new products is a common method for sustaining a green environment, but it isn't only limited to reusing old cans, plastics, and paper. In chemistry, scientists use discarded ...
