Can heat be controlled as waves?

A growing interest in thermoelectric materials—which convert waste heat to electricity—and pressure to improve heat transfer from increasingly powerful microelectronic devices have led to improved theoretical and experimental ...

Using sago waste to absorb oil spills

Waste material generated by Malaysia's sago palm industry has potential for use as an adsorbent for cleaning up oil spills, according to a study published in the Pertanika Journal of Science and Technology.

Hungary vows to start moving toxic waste from chemical plant

Some 1,000 barrels of toxic waste will be removed quickly from a defunct chemical company plant in Budapest, a Hungarian official said Thursday after Greenpeace described conditions at the site as "near catastrophic."

Researchers discover new material to produce clean energy

Researchers at the University of Houston have created a new thermoelectric material, intended to generate electric power from waste heat - from a vehicle tailpipe, for example, or an industrial smokestack - with greater efficiency ...
