A team of scientists has discovered a single-site, visible-light-activated catalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) into “building block” molecules that could be used for creating useful chemicals.
Cobalt deposits in one of Earth’s largest cobalt-mining regions are 150 million years younger than previously thought, according to a new study by University of Alberta geologists.
For more than 65 years, the Biogeoscience Institute’s R.B. Miller and Barrier Lake field research stations have been a cornerstone of the University of Calgary’s mountain and foothills ecology, environmental and wildlife research.
Rutgers scientists have developed catalysts that can convert carbon dioxide – the main cause of global warming – into plastics, fabrics, resins and other products.
The dramatic drop in the cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, which has fallen by 99 percent over the last four decades, is often touted as a major success story for renewable energy technology.
The catalyst in question has been deployed in hydrogen production. Still, with a few tricks, it can be adapted for other functions.
An international team of drought scientists show that while many dams and reservoirs are built, or expanded, to alleviate droughts and water shortages, they can paradoxically contribute to make them worse.
New silver films may boost the efficiency of solar cells and light-emitting diodes. However, they have been difficult to fabricate.
Imagine a day when emissions spewing from power plants and heavy industry are captured and fed into catalytic reactors that chemically transform greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, into industrial fuels or chemicals that emit only oxygen.
Three researchers from the UPV/EHU’s Faculty of Engineering - Bilbao and the University of Valladolid have explored how renewable energy cooperatives have evolved.
