  • New biobattery for hydrogen storage

    The fight against climate change is making the search for carbon-neutral energy sources increasingly urgent. Green hydrogen, which is produced from water with the help of renewable energies such as wind or solar power, is one of the solutions on which hopes are pinned. However, transporting and stor more

  • Converting excess atmospheric CO₂ into energy-rich chemicals

    Photoreduction of CO2 into transportable fuel like formic acid (HCOOH) is a great way of dealing with CO2’s rising levels in the atmosphere. To aid in this mission, a research team from Tokyo Tech chose an easily available iron-based mineral and loaded it onto an alumina support to develop a catalys more

  • The next big thing: A new technology for directly converting carbon dioxide into pure formic acid

    Anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide bring a series of climatic and environmental problems including global warming. Artificially upcycling of carbon dioxide into value-added fuels and chemicals, powered by "green electricity" of renewable energy, provides an elegant route to close the anthropo more

What is it, then, that gives honey this unusual p more
