A federal court in Boston has issued a ruling temporarily halting electrolysis treatments for a convicted murderer seeking sex reassignment surgery. District Court Judge Mark Wolf, chief judge of the court, ruled Tuesday that the Massachusetts Department of Corrections has gone out of its way to accommodate the prisoner's gender identity disorder. Michelle Kosilek was born Robert Kosilek and has lived and dressed as a woman for the past 16 years while serving a sentence for killing his wife...

A process that cleans wastewater and generates electricity can also remove 90 percent of salt from brackish water or seawater, according to an international team of researchers from China and the U.S.Clean water for drinking, washing and industrial uses is a scarce resource in some parts of the world. Its availability in the future will be even more problematic. Many locations already desalinate water using either a reverse osmosis process -- one that pushes water under high pressure through...

Could the cars and laptops of the future be fueled by old chip fat?Engineers at the University of Leeds believe so, and are developing an energy efficient, environmentally-friendly hydrogen production system. The system enables hydrogen to be extracted from waste materials, such as vegetable oil and the glycerol by-product of bio-diesel. The aim is to create the high purity hydrogen-based fuel necessary not only for large-scale power production, but also for smaller portable fuel cells.Dr...

Scientists at Israel's Weizmann Institute say they have developed a new water splitting technology that eliminates the need for a sacrificial chemical. Professor David Milstein and colleagues said their new technology achieved a bond generation between oxygen atoms and defined the mechanism by which it takes place. Discovery of an efficient artificial catalyst for the sunlight-driven splitting of water into oxygen and hydrogen is a major goal of renewable clean energy research, institute...

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...

MORGANTOWN, W.Va., March 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) today announced its plans to construct and operate a hydrogen fuel production-and-dispensing facility at the Yeager Airport in Charleston, W.Va. According to U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., "This project is a great example of the wonderful potential of coal. Coal can produce hydrogen fuel, which can greatly reduce greenhouse gases and our need to import...
