Graphene Catalyst for Synthetic Fuel Production

Graphene Synthetic Fuel Catalyst Developed by University of Illinois at Chicago

Synthetic fuels can turn practically any vehicle carbon-neutral, since the vehicle would emit the same carbon dioxide that was used to make the fuel...

MIT Researchers’ New Device Generates Electricity From Air

Just because solar and wind power are making an incredible progress, it does not mean that the other renewable energy sources should be neglected and...

LED-powered Christmas Tree

Ever thought about how much electricity does your Christmas tree consume? You need not to be scarce, but think on big scale how many...

Commercially-Viable Renewable Algae Biofuel Developed by Teenager

Since 1998, Intel has been a sponsor of the 70 year old Science Talent Search, a competitive science fair that draws the best and...

World’s Only Solid Hydrogen Piece Has Disappeared

It would appear the the first possible instance of solid hydrogen has disappeared, if it was ever there to begin with. In a terrible...

How Thermophotovoltaic Solar Cells Could be 80% Efficient

Theoretically, single-junction photovoltaic solar cells can only achieve 34% efficiency, a theoretical maximum, since that's pretty much all the spectrum they can absorb and...

Friction Heater Gets Almost Free Energy From Wood – Iron Friction

If this truly works (and I don't see why it shouldn't), it is the greatest home-produced energy discovery since the wheel has been founded. Lloyd Tanner uses an incredibly simple assembly of two 4x4 inch wood pieces, and an iron wheel spinning in between.

New Highly Efficient Heat Pumps to Reduce Heating Costs in Cold Regions Discovered

According to a new study, heat pumps are not so efficient in extremely cold climates, only being suited for moderate climates. These provide cooling in summer and heating in winter. Researchers at Purdue University have recently developed a new type of heat pump that allows residents in cold climates to halve their heating bills, due to its high efficiency.
