Carbon dioxide (CO2) could be a better hydraulic fracturing fluid than water, according to a new paper published on 30 May in the peer-reviewed journal Joule (1). And could pave
To meet the increasing demand for better and superfast computing power, researchers have developed a novel approach that uses light pulses instead of electricity to dramatically boosts computer processing speeds.
What geopolitical implications could arise from transitioning to a low-carbon world? A new commentary published on 1 May in Nature examines four possible scenarios, which they refer to as ‘Four
Carbon capture and storage (CSS) from fossil fuel power stations is considered crucial to mitigating the effects of climate change. However, a new study published on 8 April in Nature
A new study published ahead of print on 8 April in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences analysed the potential of realising carbon-negative power in China, the world’s
Although still in the early stages, researchers from McGill in Canada and the University of Birmingham in the UK have uncovered a potential new type of rocket fuel that is
Scientists have developed a new way to capture and store carbon. The negative emission technology uses a liquid-metal electrocatalyst to transforms carbon dioxide gas into carbon-containing solids at room temperature.
Dams are frequently criticised for their environmental impact. But are they all bad? A new commentary published on 19 February in Nature argues, “dams that are well planned, constructed and
A recent study published on 13 February in Proceedings of the Royal Society A describes a novel device for generating energy from the sea by converting wave energy into electricity.
Researchers have developed a novel device that can convert energy from Wi-Fi signals into electricity. A new paper describing the new groundbreaking technology was published on 28 January in the
