New catalyst paves way for carbon neutral fuel

23-Jun-2017

Australian scientists have paved the way for carbon neutral fuel with the development of a new efficient catalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air into synthetic natural gas in a 'clean' process using solar energy. Undertaken by University of Adelaide in collaboration with CSIRO, ...

Graphene from soybeans

16-Feb-2017

A breakthrough by CSIRO-led scientists has made the world's strongest material more commercially viable, thanks to the humble soybean. Graphene is a carbon material that is one atom thick. Its thin composition and high conductivity means it is used in applications ranging from miniaturised ...

Designer crystals for next-gen electronics

16-Dec-2015

Liquid is often seen as the kryptonite of electronics, known for damaging and corroding components. That's why a new process that uses vapour- rather than liquid - to grow designer crystals could lead to a new breed of faster, more powerful electronic devices. The method, invented by an ...

Plastic in 99 percent of seabirds by 2050

02-Sep-2015

Researchers from CSIRO and Imperial College London have assessed how widespread the threat of plastic is for the world's seabirds and found the majority of seabird species have plastic in their gut. The study, led by Dr Chris Wilcox with co-authors Dr Denise Hardesty and Dr Erik van Sebille found ...

'Poisoning' corrosion brings stainless magnesium closer

22-Aug-2013

In a discovery that could have major implications for the aerospace, automotive and electronics industries, scientists have found a way to dramatically reduce the corrosion rate of lightweight wonder metal magnesium: adding arsenic. Weighing in at two thirds less than aluminium, magnesium is the ...

Soil carbon 'blowing in the wind'

08-Aug-2013

Australian soils are losing about 1.6 million tonnes of carbon per year from wind erosion and dust storms affecting agricultural productivity, our economy and carbon accounts, according to new research. Top soil is rich in nutrients and carbon but is increasingly being blown away by events such ...

HIPS fireproof coatings can really take the heat

21-Jul-2009

Tough new fire-resistant coating materials called HIPS ('hybrid inorganic polymer system') are being developed by CSIRO researchers in Melbourne. HIPS coatings can withstand temperatures of over 1000°C compared to current commercial coatings used on building materials and structures which break ...
