How do we want to heat our homes in the future?

Researchers work on sustainable solutions for heating oil boilers


The question of heating is becoming increasingly important in times of scarce resources and of global warming. Are oil heating systems still future-proof? Moreover, if so, can they be operated with efficient, sustainable fuels? Researchers are striving to make heating with oil more sustainable as ...

Researchers uncover new water monitoring technique

New method simultaneously monitors clumps and the mixing intensity in a single step


Water is a vital resource, and clean water is a necessity. Texas A&M University researchers have developed a new technique to monitor one of the key processes of purifying water in real time. Raw water contains microscopic pathogens that are too small to remove during water and wastewater ...

Researchers use lead recycled from car batteries to make photodetectors

Recycling strategy could keep lead out of landfills and give used car batteries a second life in high-tech equipment


As lithium-ion batteries continue to decrease in price, they are quickly replacing the lead-acid batteries traditionally used in cars and other vehicles. This is creating a sudden abundance of used lead acid batteries, which would be harmful to the environment and people if not recycled properly. ...
