Latest Hydrocarbon Stories
A study by Duke University researchers has found high levels of leaked methane in well water collected near shale-gas drilling and hydrofracking sites.
A new computational study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals how hydrocarbons may be formed from methane in deep Earth at extreme pressures and temperatures.
University of Minnesota researchers are a key step closer to making renewable petroleum fuels using bacteria, sunlight and dioxide, a goal funded by a $2.2 million United States Department of Energy grant.
Researchers from Cardiff University are opening up a new way of using hydrocarbon feedstocks to make a range of valuable products.
For the first time, chemists have succeeded in plugging a metal atom into a methane gas molecule, thereby creating a new compound that could be a key in opening up new production processes for the chemical industry, especially for the synthesis of organic compounds, which in turn might have implications for drug development.
It sounds a bit like spinning straw into gold, but novel metal catalysts may be able to turn greenhouse gases like methane and carbon dioxide into liquid fuels without producing more carbon waste in the process.
CLEVELAND, Nov. 11, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Abanaki Corporation offers a cost-effective way to remove hydrocarbon contamination from groundwater without pumps. Engineers in industrial settings have, for many years, valued oil skimmers as the lowest cost way to remove hydrocarbons from wastewater.
CSIRO scientists have developed a revolutionary technique for the rapid on-site detection and quantification of petroleum hydrocarbons (commonly derived from crude oil) in soil, silt, sediment, or rock.
Titan, one of Saturn's moons, is the only moon in the solar system with an atmosphere â€” ten times denser than the atmosphere of Earth.
Rice University formula could make fuel production better, greener.
