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
A recent survey has found that “emissions charges could be popular if revenues are given back to citizens.” Based on their findings, a commentary published on 16 January in Nature,
Energy sources are needed to achieve the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal for clean water and sanitation (SDG6), in order to facilitate energy-intensive water treatment processes. At the same
In October, Bord na Móna ― an Irish semi-state owned peat harvesting and energy company based in Newbridge, County Kildare ― announced it will close 17 of its 62 active
A new study published on 29 November in the journal Science has presented a newly developed iron (Fe) molecule that can function as both a photocatalyst to produce fuel and
Modern aeroplanes achieve flight using propellers and turbines powered by the combustion of greenhouse-gas emitting fossil fuels. A new paper published on 21 November in Nature has reported the first
