These space rocks could save the planet

12-May-2016

The box was inconspicuous, but Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) postdoctoral researcher Megan Bruck Syal immediately knew its contents: two meteorites around the size of walnuts. They formed about 4.6 billion years ago and survived a history of violent collisions in the asteroid belt ...

Team may have a key solution to reducing carbon dioxide emissions

08-Jan-2016

Meeting the Paris Climate Agreement goal of limiting the increase in the global average temperature to well below two degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels will require increased use of renewable energy and reducing the CO2 intensity of fossil energy use. The intermittency of when the ...

Using hydrogen to enhance lithium ion batteries

Lithium ion batteries operate longer and faster when treated with hydrogen.

09-Nov-2015

Lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are a class of rechargeable battery types in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging. The growing demand for energy storage emphasizes the urgent need for higher-performance batteries. ...
