New form of carbon capture actually creates power, rather than consuming it

New form of carbon capture actually creates power, rather than consuming it A new form of carbon capture could solve one of the major problems facing the most efficient versions of the technology: energy.This new electrochemical cell, on the other hand, produces industrially useful oxalates that could be sold to chemicals companies and manufacturing companies.

New copper catalyst could close the carbon cycle, making ethanol from atmospheric CO2

New copper catalyst could close the carbon cycle, making ethanol from atmospheric CO2 In a quest to find a way to convert carbon dioxide into something useful, researchers from Oak Ridge National Labs in TN stumbled across an inexpensive, room-temperature catalyst for turning CO2 into ethanol.The new catalyst is made of copper nanoparticles, electroplated onto a substrate of vapor-deposited, nitrogen-doped graphene nanospikes, all atop a slice of n-type silicon semiconductor.

Academics, scientists, coders in mad scramble to rescue federal climate data

Academics, scientists, coders in mad scramble to rescue federal climate data I cannot believe it’s come to saying this, but the federally funded thieves and liars of the Trump administration are literally coming for the data.Baggers took those data sets and banged out custom scripts, to carefully comb out the data from the sprawling pastiche of hacked-together crap we call a government web presence.

SodaStream recalls some bottles since they might explode in your face

SodaStream recalls some bottles since they might explode in your face Believe it or not, repeatedly pumping carbon dioxide into a small bottle might just make it go boom.The one-liter bottles in question have a blue tint and base, dishwasher safe labels and an expiration date of April 2020.

Nanocubes of this metal can generate fuel from CO2 using only sunlight

Nanocubes of this metal can generate fuel from CO2 using only sunlight Researchers from Duke University have discovered a way to use nanocubes of rhodium as a cheap solar-powered catalyst, converting carbon dioxide into methane quickly and with high efficiency.But what actually makes rhodium nanocubes special is that using them makes the reaction tunable.

The head of the EPA just made another dangerous comment about global warming

The head of the EPA just made another dangerous comment about global warming we need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis," he said.The question CNBC asked Pruitt was: "Do you believe that it's been proven that [carbon dioxide] is the primary control knob for climate?

Michael Bloomberg called 'bullsh*t' on this energy technology

Michael Bloomberg called 'bullsh*t' on this energy technology Michael Bloomberg, an outspoken environmentalist and former New York City mayor, had some harsh words for carbon capture and storage, the unproven technology that proponents say will turn fossil fuels into "clean" energy sources.Climate experts say it will be next to impossible to eliminate the world's emissions without carbon capture systems.

Synthetic material replicates photosynthesis to generate energy, clean air

Synthetic material replicates photosynthesis to generate energy, clean air “The practical applications of this work include the development of future technology that will transform CO2 (carbon dioxide) into useful materials, including what we call ‘solar fuel,’” Dr.These materials contain nanometer-sized holes, making them small enough to absorb carbon dioxide into the material.
