Scientists from Trinity College Dublin have taken a giant stride towards solving a riddle that would provide the world with entirely renewable, clean energy from which water would be the only waste product. Reducing humanity’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is arguably the greatest challenge facing 21st-century civilization – especially given […]

Using drought-prone California as a case study, a research team shows that increased solar and wind energy can reduce the reliance on hydropower, especially during drought. Credit: Egan Jimenez, Princeton University California’s switch to solar, wind energy reduced reliance on hydropower, natural gas. Solar and wind farms are popping up […]

An image of one of Renewlogy’s conversion machines. Plastics entering Renewlogy’s system are first shredded, then put through a chemical reformer, where a catalyst degrades their long carbon chains. Roughly 15 to 20 percent of those chains are converted into hydrocarbon gas that Renewlogy recycles to heat the system. Five […]

A research team from Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Kanazawa University developed an eco-friendly device that uses solar energy to catalyze an electrochemical oxidation reaction with high efficiency. Green energy sources constitute a hot research field globally because of the current environmental crisis and the necessity to avoid […]
