As demand climbs for more fuel-efficient vehicles, knowledge compiled over several years about diesel engines and a new strategy known as "low-temperature combustion" (LTC) might soon lead auto manufacturers and consumers to broader use of cleaner diesel engines in the United States. The journal Progress in Energy and Combustion Science published a summary of recent research on diesel LTC in a review article titled "Conceptual models for partially premixed low-temperature diesel...

[ Watch the video "Strange Flames On The International Space Station" ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) analyzed the behavior of flames in space, including how and why they form little "spheres." Thousands of chemical reactions take place simultaneously within a flame. Hydrocrabon molecules from the wick are vaporized and cracked apart by heat, and they combine with oxygen to produce light, heat, carbon...

Faster Energy Creation From New Natural Gas Conversion Method
2013-05-08 05:46:52

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new mechanism to convert natural gas to energy up to 70 times faster than current methods has been identified by chemical engineering researchers. This new mechanism also effectively captures the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2). “This could make power generation from natural gas both cleaner and more efficient,” says Fanxing Li, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at North Carolina State...

A Bunsen burner produces a single open gas flame; it is commonly found in labs - used for heating, sterilization, and combustion. Robert Bunsen, in 1852, was hired at the University of Heidelberg and promised a new laboratory building. Heidelberg had just started installing coal-gas street lighting which provided light but not necessarily heat. Laboratory lamps, at the time, left much to be desired regarding economy and simplicity. The desire was to maximize the temperature and minimize...
