NiFe Nanoparticles Raise Electrolysis Hydrogen Production by 300%

A company, named QuantumSphere, has designed a metal coating system made for electrolyzers, made out of nanoparticles of NiFe (Fero-Nickel, or in plain english, a combination between iron and nickel). This coating would cover the electrolyzers' anode and cathode and increase the actual contact surface with water by over 1000 times!

New Mitochondria Fuel Cells Could Generate Electricity From Sugar or Fats

Mitochondria, also called "the cells' powerhouses", may one day replace batteries as we know them. Scientists from the University of Missouri invented and developed a new fuel cell based on these also called "organelles" (the internal organs of cells). The fuel cell is able to feed on sugars and fats, just like mitochondria in the organisms do.
