Odd microbial partnerships via electrically conductive particles

Human activities have contributed to global warming, leading to increasing erosion of land. This results in conductive minerals being washed into water streams. The inflow of conductive particles can enable unusual electric ...

New natural gas catalyst would boost clean transportation

Thanks to advances in drilling technology, there is enough natural gas in the U.S. to last well into next century and beyond. This has renewed the idea of using inexpensive, domestically produced natural gas as a transportation ...

Bacteria eats greenhouse gas with a side of protein

With the ability to leech heavy metals from the environment and digest a potent greenhouse gas, methanotrophic bacteria pull double duty when it comes to cleaning up the environment.

Thawing permafrost produces more methane than expected

Methane (CH4) is a potent greenhouse gas that is roughly 30 times more harmful to the climate than carbon dioxide (CO2). Both gases are produced in thawing permafrost as dead animal and plant remains are decomposed. However, ...
