Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)  and UC Berkeley and have discovered new materials to capture methane, the second highest concentration greenhouse gas emitted into the atmosphere. Methane is a substantial driver of global climate change, contributing 30 percent of current net climate warming. Concern over methane is mounting, due to leaks associated with rapidly expanding unconventional oil and gas extraction, and the potential for large-scale release of...

Stepping into unexplored territory in efforts to use corn stalks, grass and other non-food plants to make biofuels, scientists today described the discovery of a potential treasure-trove of candidate enzymes in fungi thriving in the feces and intestinal tracts of horses. They reported on these enzymes – the key to economical production of biofuels from non-food plant material – at the 245th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS). More than...

Volcanic Activity Would Have Helped Mars Sustain Liquid Water
2013-04-09 10:17:31

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study suggests that Earth´s atmosphere is largely the product of carbon dioxide gas moving from the mantle to the surface through volcanic activity; if similar activity were to happen on Mars — the planet would be able to sustain liquid water. According to the study, which appeared in the early online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide...

Tunicate Marine Animal Could Be Next Biofuel
2013-03-25 18:51:02

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists are looking to the ocean for the next big thing in renewable sources of biofuel for your eco-car. Five researchers at the University of Bergen (UiB) and Uni Research say they found the marine animal tunicate could be used as a renewable source of biofuel. These marine animals serve as bacteria eaters and as a foodstuff in Korea and Japan right now, but the cellulose, the protein and the Omega-3 fatty acids in tunicate are...

First Evidence Of Life Deep Under Oceanic Crust Realized
2013-03-15 12:56:53

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists writing in the journal Science say they have found the first direct evidence of life in the deeply buried oceanic crust. Researchers on board the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program's (IODP) research vessel JOIDES Resolution drilled a water depth of 1.5 miles and hundreds of feet of sediment into the oceanic crust off the west coast of North America. After examining rock samples from this depth, they were able to uncover...
