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...

The result might help understand chemical processes in energy generation or pollution cleanupSingle oxygen atoms dancing on a metal oxide slab, glowing brighter here and dimmer there, have helped chemists better understand how water splits into oxygen and hydrogen. In the process, the scientists have visualized a chemical reaction that had previously only been talked about. The new work improves our understanding of the chemistry needed to generate hydrogen fuel from water or to clean...

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...

Berkeley Lab Researchers Create a Nano-sized Photocatalyst for Artificial Photosynthesis For millions of years, green plants have employed photosynthesis to capture energy from sunlight and convert it into electrochemical energy. A goal of scientists has been to develop an artificial version of photosynthesis that can be used to produce liquid fuels from carbon dioxide and water. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have now...


Word of the Day
endocarp
  • The hard inner (usually woody) layer of the pericarp of some fruits (as peaches or plums or cherries or olives) that contains the seed.
This word comes from the Greek 'endon,' in, within, plus the Greek 'kardia,' heart.
