The Ultimate Hydrogen Storage – Made of Corncobs!

One thing is to be noted here: one gram of carbon made from corncobs has its molecular internal surface equal to a football field, plus it has been proved that boron doping will further increase this capacity in great amounts.

World's Smallest Nano-Motor Powered by Electricity for First Time in History

Now this is not our typical green scientific breakthrough, but it may one day change the way we consume energy and improve electric motors...

Flare: The Most Time-, Cost- and Energy-Efficient Cooking Pot

Cooking at home is great, and certainly a lot more healthy (for your body and your pocket) than eating out. Unfortunately, cooking takes up...

How New Self-Healing Circuit Restores Electricity in 20 Seconds

The Morning Challenge Suggests Japanese People To Wake Up 1 Hour Earlier For Saving...

It looks like the Japanese aren't going to stay behind the English with daylight saving (or vice-versa), and launch a campaign that encourages people to change their wake-up and sleep time one hour earlier to save lots of tons of emitted carbon dioxide.

Hygroelectricity: A New Type Of Alternative Energy, Extracted From Air's Electrical Charge

In their search of alternative energy resources, scientists have stopped at a phenomenon that, although known for ages, brought them surprises. They want to harvest electricity by profiting from the fact that air is loaded with electric charges, and work on a prototype for such a harvester.

3D Printing Could Be Key to Sustainable Manufacturing

An inkjet printer creates a two-dimensional or planar figure using digital information of the desired output. Similarly, 3D printing creates a three-dimensional object, an...

True North Log Homes Adds More Energy Efficiency by Using Sustainably Grown Timber

New Carbon Collecting Car – Really That Green?

Georgia Institute of Technology has created a concept of a car in a pretty new polluting fashion: it uses petrol as a fuel, but...

Organic Photovoltaic Solar Cells: A New Graphene-Based, Flexible Kind of Cell

A team of researchers from the University of Southern California has published a paper in the most recent journal ACS Nano, revealing a new approach to solar cells. Specifically, they combined graphene, one of the most recent and studied materials discovered, and organic (Graetzel) solar cells. Their project has produced organic photovoltaic cells (OPV).
