PEM electrolysis efficiency and durability takes leap forward WALLINGFORD, Conn., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Proton Energy Systems today announced a major technological milestone involving its advanced high pressure, proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis technology. Proton has demonstrated more than 18,000 hours of hydrogen generation at 2,400 psi, without any external mechanical compression. The ability to produce hydrogen at elevated pressure will help reduce the hydrogen storage...

U.S. scientists say they've discovered microbes can directly convert carbon dioxide and water to methane without generating hydrogen. Pennsylvania State University Professor Bruce Logan said his team made the discovery while studying making hydrogen in microbial electrolysis cells. We kept getting all this methane, he said. We may now understand why. Methanogenic microorganisms produce methane in marshes and dumps but scientists thought the organisms turned hydrogen or organic materials, such...

A tiny microbe can take electricity and directly convert carbon dioxide and water to methane, producing a portable energy source with a potentially neutral carbon footprint, according to a team of Penn State engineers. "We were studying making hydrogen in microbial electrolysis cells and we kept getting all this methane," said Bruce E. Logan, Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering, Penn State. "We may now understand why." Methanogenic microorganisms do produce methane in marshes and...

A U.S. Navy laboratory has produced "significant" evidence of the controversial energy source known as cold fusion, the Associated Press reported. Researchers are calling it the first clear visual evidence that low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR), or cold fusion devices can produce neutrons capable of nuclear reactions. Analytical chemist Pamela Mosier-Boss of the U.S. Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWAR) in San Diego, California, called the finding "very significant."...

Platinum is highly desired in jewelry and as a catalyst, but in both cases it is expensive. Now, Penn State researchers have found a way to replace the platinum catalyst in their hydrogen generating microbial electrolysis cells with stainless steel brushes without losing efficiency."Stainless steel brush cathodes can produce hydrogen at rates and efficiencies similar to those we have achieved with platinum-catalyzed carbon cloth," says Bruce E. Logan, Kappe professor of environmental...

By James Thalman Deseret News Using the sun combined with nature's way of turning solar power into life-sustaining energy can be captured, artificially induced and could provide enough power in less than an hour to run the house, the car and bring on an era of true energy independence. The power of solar is not on the grand scale of collectors spread over square acres in the west desert, says Daniel Nocera, a widely cited chemist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who is...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
