Mar. 10, 2017 — Regular, unleaded or algae? That's a choice drivers could make at the pump one day. But for algal biofuels to compete with petroleum, farming algae has to become less expensive. Toward that ... read more

Mar. 9, 2017 — On Earth, liquid flows downhill thanks to gravity. Creating an effective liquid fuel tank involves little more than putting a hole at the bottom of a container. That won't work in space, though. ... read more

Petrol, Jet Fuel Alternatives Are Produced by Yeast Cell Factories

Mar. 9, 2017 — There have been many attempts to modify this stubborn little enzyme, but none have succeeded. Until now. New findings show that the fatty acid synthase (FAS) enzyme has started to produce sustainable ... read more

Mar. 8, 2017 — Scientists have invented a new foam, called Oleo Sponge, that not only easily adsorbs spilled oil from water, but is also reusable and can pull dispersed oil from the entire water column -- not just ... read more

Mar. 6, 2017 — Researchers have demonstrated a new polysulfide entrapping strategy that greatly improves the cycle stability of Li-S batteries, a new report ... read more

Mar. 6, 2017 — Food waste can partially replace the petroleum-based filler that has been used in manufacturing tires for more than a century, scientists have discovered. In tests, rubber made with the new fillers ... read more

Space Energy Technology Restored to Make Power Stations More Efficient

Mar. 6, 2017 — Satellite-powering technology that was abandoned decades ago has been reinvented to potentially work with traditional power stations to help them convert heat to electricity more efficiently, meaning ... read more

Mar. 6, 2017 — Researchers have developed a simple device that can detect an oil spill in water and then pinpoint the type of oil present on the surface. The device is designed to float on the water, where it could ... read more
