Water is well known as a cleansing agent but – when it comes to biofuel production – too much water is dirtying up the process. Researchers from the United States Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have found that water helps form an impurity which slows down key chemical reaction in the biofuel process. The study examined the conversion of biomass into bio-oil for transportation fuel. The researchers used computer simulations to...

Solar with a view – transparent solar material developed at M.S.U. http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17711-solar-with-a-view-transparent-solar-material-developed-at-m-s-u http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17711-solar-with-a-view-transparent-solar-material-developed-at-m-s-u

A new transparent solar concentrator developed at Michigan State University is offering building owners the opportunity to enjoy solar power with a view. The transparent luminescent solar concentrator can be placed on any clear surface, such as the windows of buildings or even cellphone displays, to allow the creation of solar energy.While the production of energy from solar cells placed around luminescent plastic-like materials is not new, previous...

Used car batteries: Out of the landfills, into perovskite-based solar panels http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17707-used-car-batteries-out-of-the-landfills-into-perovskite-based-solar-panels http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17707-used-car-batteries-out-of-the-landfills-into-perovskite-based-solar-panels

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a way to improve solar panels using recycled materials from discarded car batteries. Professors Angela M. Belcher and Paula T. Hammod led a team that developed high-performing solar cells using a compound called perovskite and recycled lead from old car batteries. Perovskite is considered a promising solar material, with one drawback: perovskite-based solar cells need lead. As lead and its...

From used to useful – cigarette butts used to store energy http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17701-from-used-to-useful-cigarette-butts-used-to-store-energy http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17701-from-used-to-useful-cigarette-butts-used-to-store-energy

Used cigarette butts could go from unsightly trash to key materials for the next generation of energy storage devices. It’s estimated that as many as 5.6 trillion used cigarettes or 766,571 metric ton of cigarette butts are disposed of worldwide every year. Now, a group of South Korean scientists are working to use these discarded butts in the place of carbon, graphene and carbon nanotubes. “Our study has shown that used cigarette filters can be transformed...

Copper foam producing useful chemicals from harmful carbon dioxide http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17694-copper-foam-producing-useful-chemicals-from-harmful-carbon-dioxide http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17694-copper-foam-producing-useful-chemicals-from-harmful-carbon-dioxide

Scientists at Brown University are working with copper foam to develop catalysts that could convert captured carbon dioxide into useful industrial chemicals. Copper foam is made by depositing the metal copper onto a surface in the presence of hydrogen and a strong electric current. Hydrogen bubbles cause the copper to be deposited in an arrangement of pores and channels of varying sizes, creating sponge-like “foam.” The rough surface of copper foam could...

Patterned silica layer allows solar cell to cool itself http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17661-patterned-silica-layer-allows-solar-cell-to-cool-itself http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17661-patterned-silica-layer-allows-solar-cell-to-cool-itself

By adding a specially patterned layer of silica glass to a solar cell, a team of researchers from Stanford University have improved its ability to transform sunlight to clean energy. Solar cells are at the core of solar power technology, but even the best designs convert only a fraction of the energy they absorb from the sun into usable electricity. Part of the reason for this loss of energy is due to solar cells overheating. Under normal operating con...

Minimizing the glare of L.E.D. lights for safer night time driving http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17657-minimizing-the-glare-of-l-e-d-lights-for-safer-night-time-driving http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17657-minimizing-the-glare-of-l-e-d-lights-for-safer-night-time-driving

While the use of light emitting diode technology or L.E.D.s are rising – mostly due to their energy-efficiency – there is some concern that the harsh glare of L.E.D. lights could be a safety concern. A team of researchers from China and the Netherlands have become the first to look into and evaluate the effect of the levels of discomfort glare – the urge to look away from a bright light – in L.E.D. road lights. While our vision can adapt to the surrounding...

More arctic lakes, more carbon storage? http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17653-more-arctic-lakes-more-carbon-storage http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17653-more-arctic-lakes-more-carbon-storage

Thermokarst lakes – created when permafrost melts – are soaking up carbon from the atmosphere. New research from the University of Alaska Fairbanks is contradicting the commonly held notion that melting permafrost is destroying the artic landscapes ability to act as carbon sinks. Thermokarst lakes are created when melting permafrost leaves surface depressions filled with melted fresh water. More and more of these lakes are dotting the artic landscape due to...

The next-generation of cellphones and other personal gadgets could be powered by water droplets. A team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed – and successfully demonstrated – a process by which they can generate small amounts of electricity from the movement of water molecules. Postdoc Nenad Miljkovic and associate professor of mechanical engineering Evelyn Wang and their team built their process using...

Sand used for better lithium ion battery http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17633-sand-used-for-better-lithium-ion-battery http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17633-sand-used-for-better-lithium-ion-battery

A new low cost way to improve the performance of lithium ion batteries has been developed to the University of California, Riverside. The key is, to add a little sand. Sand. Yes, sand. The stuff you find on your hair and clothing after a trip to the beach is the key to the creation of the lithium ion battery that can outperform the current industry standard by three times. “This is the holy grail – a low cost, non-toxic, environmentally friendly way to pro...
