Polluted air could generate power

Polluted air could generate power
Researchers from the University of Antwerp and KU Leuven have succeeded in developing a process that purifies air and, at the same time, generates power. The device must only be exposed to light in order to function. “We use a small device with two rooms separated by a membrane,” explains Professor Sammy Verbruggen (UAntwerp/KU Leuven). “Air is purified on one side, while on the other side hydrogen gas is produced from a part of the degradation products".

Genome sequence of fuel-producing alga discovered

Genome sequence of fuel-producing alga discovered
The genome of the fuel-producing green microalga Botryococcus braunii has been sequenced by a team of researchers led by a group at Texas A&M AgriLife Research. The report, in Genome Announcements, comes after almost seven years of research, according to Dr. Tim Devarenne, AgriLife Research biochemist and principal investigator in College Station.

Collaboration for economical production of hydrogen fuel

Collaboration for economical production of hydrogen fuel
In order to accelerate the commercialisation of hydrogen fuelled vehicles, both in Spain and the UK, ULEMCo has announced a collaboration with Spanish company H2B2. The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding that sees the firms enter a non-exclusive partnership to maximise the opportunity for the use and supply of hydrogen economically through scaled production.

Analysis procedure for biogas substrates is developed

Analysis procedure for biogas substrates is developed
The biological department of biogas specialist WELTEC BIOPOWER in Vechta, Germany, is developing a quick test for identifying inhibitors in biogas substrates together with its partners. Input mass may contain substances that prevent efficient biogas production. For example, a small amount of mould is sufficient to cause such an adverse effect in silage. Ammonium, copper, zinc, drugs and disinfectants are often identified as inhibitors in slurry and manure.

Flexible device captures energy from human motion

Flexible device captures energy from human motion
Michigan State University engineering researchers have created a way to harvest energy from human motion, using a film-like device that actually can be folded to create more power. With the low-cost device, known as a nanogenerator, the scientists successfully operated an LCD touch screen, a bank of 20 LED lights and a flexible keyboard, all with a simple touching or pressing motion and without the aid of a battery.
