Researchers Found An Enzyme That Could Get Gasoline From Thin Air

"This organism is a very common soil bacteria that is very well understood and has been studied for a long time. But while we were studying it, we realized that the enzyme has some unusual behavior", said Markus Ribbe, a scientist at the University of California.
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...

Vibration-Powered Magnetostrictive Generator Invented By Japanese Researcher

Vibrations can drive your watch and other small appliances more easily, as one researcher from the Kanazawa University in Japan has developed a possible replacement for button batteries. His device works on vibrations and could one day power even bigger stuff, if put in a serial configuration.

Sound Waves – A Different Kind of Power Source That Can Charge Your Cellphone

Researchers from Korea are working on a new technology that can power your cellphone with sound. They have turned zinc oxide (the main ingredient of calamine lotion) into a tiny material that converts sound waves into energy through piezoelectricity.
