Part microbe, part machine: Bionic leaf sucks up carbon dioxide as it makes liquid fuel
A team of scientists at Harvard University says it has come up with a bionic leaf — a system that could use solar power and hydrogen-eating bacteria to generate liquid fuel. The findings, described in...
Scientists find a way to convert Carbon Dioxide from air into fuel
Researchers have discovered a process that takes Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from the air and converts it into methanol (CH3OH) with the help of a homogeneous catalyst.
Energy Storage: You’ll Never Be-Leaf What Makes Up This Battery
Scientists at the University of Maryland have a new recipe for batteries: Bake a leaf, and add sodium. They used a carbonized oak leaf, pumped full of sodium, as a demonstration battery’s negative ter...
