Forget about the gas versus charcoal debate. The key to better grilling is at the grate, where the meat meets the heat. GrillGrates are a redesign of the grilling surface from the bottom up. GrillGrates are interlocking panels that simply lay on top of the existing grid to form a new grilling surface on any grill.

Biochar can offset 1.8 billion metric tons of carbon emissions annually As much as 12 percent of the world's human-caused greenhouse gas emissions could be sustainably offset by producing biochar, a charcoal-like substance made from plants and other organic materials. That's more than what could be offset if the same plants and materials were burned to generate energy, concludes a study published today in the journal Nature Communications. "These calculations show that biochar can play a...

Nitrogen-altering bacteria thrive under charcoal deposition When fire burns down a forest, nitrate levels go up, and the effects are persistent, according to recent research from University of Montana scientists. They found that charcoal deposited during fire events has the potential to stimulate the conversion of ammonia to nitrates, an important step in the nitrogen cycle. Led by Patrick Ball, the research team found that a type of bacteria that transforms ammonia into nitrates was found in...

Scientists are reporting that "biochar" "” a material that the Amazonian Indians used to enhance soil fertility centuries ago "” has potential in the modern world to help slow global climate change. Mass production of biochar could capture and sock away carbon that otherwise would wind up in the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas. Their report appears in ACS' Environmental Science & Technology, a bi-weekly journal. Kelli Roberts and colleagues note that...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
