'Artificial leaf' converts harmful carbon dioxide into useful alternative fuel

07-Nov-2019

Scientists have created an "artificial leaf" to fight climate change by inexpensively converting harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) into a useful alternative fuel. The new technology, outlined in a paper published in the journal Nature Energy, was inspired by the way plants use energy from sunlight to ...

Powder could help cut CO2 emissions

20-Dec-2018

Scientists at the University of Waterloo have created a powder that can capture CO2 from factories and power plants. The powder, created in the lab of Zhongwei Chen, a chemical engineering professor at Waterloo, can filter and remove CO2 at facilities powered by fossil fuels before it is released ...

Mass production of new class of semiconductors closer to reality

13-Feb-2018

Two Waterloo chemists have made it easier for manufacturers to produce a new class of faster and cheaper semiconductors. The chemists have found a way to simultaneously control the orientation and select the size of single-walled carbon nanotubes deposited on a surface. That means the developers ...
