An international research group working at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has gained a better understanding of lithium-rich battery materials with the help of a special X-ray instrument.
Membranes that allow certain molecules to quickly pass through while blocking others are key enablers for energy technologies from batteries and fuel cells to resource refinement and water purification.
About three years ago, researchers from the University of Michigan had identified a new artificial photosynthesis device composed of silicon and gallium nitride (Si/GaN).
INERGIO, a startup company of EPFL, has recently revealed a prototype for a high-performance, eco-friendly, lightweight fuel cell that is capable of supplying energy in scenarios where a power grid is absent.
When hydrogen is separated from water using solar light rather than fossil fuels, it becomes a non-polluting energy source.
A Rochester Institute of Technology faculty member has earned a prestigious National Science Foundation award to conduct fundamental physics research on complex materials in solid oxide fuel cells. Assistant Professor Pratik Dholabhai from RIT's School of Physics and Astronomy received an NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award and grant for his five-year project.
Fuel cells, which are attracting attention as an eco-friendly energy source, obtain electricity and heat simultaneously through the reverse reaction of water electrolysis. Therefore, the catalyst that enhances the reaction efficiency is directly connected to the performance of the fuel cell. To this, a POSTECH-UNIST joint research team has taken a step closer to developing high-performance catalysts by uncovering the ex-solution and phase transition phenomena at the atomic level for the first time.
A research team in Korea has developed a ceramic fuel cell that offers both stability and high performance while reducing the required amount of catalyst by a factor of 20.
Scientists from China and the United Kindom have used salt as the main ingredient to design a new kind of rechargeable battery that could expedite the transformation to a greener electric transport on the roads.
Wanner International Limited has launched its new Hydra-Cell® Jet Pump Hydraulic Artificial Lift Solution that offers the lowest cost of lifting a barrel of fluid, reducing costs in oil and gas production, generating huge savings over the lifetime of a well. The seal-free, no packing API 674 system is suitable for mainstream oil and gas production. It does not require a workover rig, pulling unit or slick line unit for servicing or well production optimisation.
