Researchers at the University of Washington have demonstrated that trees can generate electricity. For the beginning they have successfully powered tiny electrical circuits.
Professor Yushan Yan of UC Riverside and associates have developed an alkaline membrane that they believe will one day replace Nafion and enable non-precious metal fuel cell catalysts that are composed of elements such as cobalt, nickel, iron and silver.
New researcher conducted by an international team of researchers from U.S. and China have developed a process that cleans wastewater and generates electricity. Clean water for drinking, washing and industrial uses is a scarce resource in some parts of the world.
Researchers at the University of Massachusetts have discovered a microbe called Geobacter that generates electricity when placed in wastewater and mud. Geobacter’s hairlike pili are extremely fine, only 3 to 5 nanometers in diameter or about 20,000 times finer than a human hair, and more than a thousand times longer than they are wide.
Plastic Material That Could Convert Light to Electricity Could Have a Big Impact on Solar TechnologyWednesday, August 5, 2009 9:03 1 Comment
Scientists the world over are striving to develop organic solar cells that can be produced easily and inexpensively as thin films that could be widely used to generate electricity.
Maryland scientists have accidentally discovered a bowl-shaped molecule that has the ability to extract CO2 from thin air. According to J. A. Tossell, a scientist from Maryland, another scientist discovered the molecule while doing research unrelated to global climate change.
Researchers at the Ohio University have developed an efficient way of producing hydrogen from urine – a feat that could not only fuel the cars of the future, but could also help clean up municipal wastewater. Using hydrogen to power cars has become an increasingly attractive transportation fuel, as the only emission produced is water [...]
Researchers at the University of Georgia ave developed a successful way to grow molecular wire brushes that conduct electricity, a first step in developing biological fuel cells that could power prosthetic limbs, pacemakers and cochlear implants.
Researchers have founded that microscopic organisms like microalgae and bacteria are biological factories that are proving to be efficient sources of inexpensive, environmentally friendly biofuels, which would help solve the looming fuel crisis in the 21st century.
Citroen has launched the first 100 electric car, that will hit the London streets. It’s name is C1 Ev’ie, based on the Citroen C1 version. Even if it is not a family car, C1 Ev’ie has a lot of advantages: no road tax, no C02 emission – be kind to the planet, free parking in [...]
