How Electrodes Charge and Discharge

April 4, 2014 by Energy @ MIT

The electrochemical reactions inside the porous electrodes of batteries and fuel cells have been described by theorists, but never measured directly. Now, a team at MIT has figured out a way to measure the fundamental charge transfer rate — finding some significant surprises.[read more]

To Bury CO2 or Recycle It

December 22, 2009 by Geoffrey Styles

While not the most powerful of the greenhouse gases produced by humanity, CO2 is certainly the most prevalent, if you don't count water vapor. To a very large extent, addressing climate change depends on three main strategies for dealing with the excess CO2 our activities emit: avoiding its creation by switching to other energy sources,...[read more]

A Technology to Recyle CO2 into Fuel

May 15, 2009 by Jack Mason

“Carbon Sciences is developing a breakthrough technology to recyle carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into gasoline and other fuels. Innovating at the intersection of chemical engineering and bio-engineering disciplines, we are developing a unique, energy efficient and highly scalable biocatalytic process to meet the fuel needs of the world...[read more]
