Global Hydrogen

27.09.2022

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has released a new report series on global hydrogen, showing the importance of its commercial transport and trade for the establishment of a more diversified and sustainable energy system as well as CO2 emissions reduction. Hydrogen is the most important component of a...

Passenger cars in the EU: 1 million vehicles are battery-only electric

11.09.2022

Eurostat presented statistics on passenger cars in the EU Member States, providing information on the numbers of vehicles, their age, type of engine fuel etc. Overall, over the past five years, the passenger car fleet has grown in all EU member states, reaching a total of 250 million cars in 2020, 32 million more than in...

Plant Residue for Hydrogen Production

03.08.2022

In our modern world, tremendous amounts of organic waste, such as agricultural residues, food waste and animal manure, are produced every day. The greater part of this waste is transported to composting plants and incinerated to gain heat and electricity. This process often releases significant amounts of CO2 into the...

Method for Increased Methane Yield from Biogas Plant

16.06.2022

In view of the current endeavours to reduce fossil fuel dependence and facilitate the transition to more sustainable ways of fuel production, in recent times biogas has been afforded increased attention by scientists around the world. Biogas plants use bacteria to break down biomass in an oxygen-free environment to form...

Turmeric and gold electrodes for more efficient fuel cells

24.05.2022

Fuel cells are considered one of the most promising technologies for replacing fossil fuels as energy source in many branches of industry. They use the chemical energy of hydrogen or other fuels to cleanly and efficiently produce electricity. Fuel cells can work with a wide range of fuels and feedstocks and produce power for...

Improved reformer for methanol-to-hydrogen conversion

06.05.2022

Hydrogen is considered to be one of the most important resources for the energy transition as it can be used as a transport fuel but also energise industrial processes. However, there are still several obstacles, which inhibit the widespread application of hydrogen. One of them is that hydrogen is not easy to transport. A...

Modified Catalysts for Improved Hydrogen Production

27.04.2022

Cars running on hydrogen are one of the greatest hopes for achieving a cleaner environment. They are similar to electric vehicles because they also use an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. However, unlike electric vehicles they are able to produce their own electricity: in a fuel cell, hydrogen (H2) gas...

Solid-state Batteries for Improved Performance

04.04.2022

Solid-state batteries are considered an important power source for a wide variety of applications. They use solid electrodes and solid electrolytes instead of the liquid or polymer gel electrolytes usually found in commercial batteries. Materials proposed as solid electrolytes for this type of battery comprise ceramics (e.g.,...

Converting CO2 and Methane to Desired Products

20.03.2022

Ethane and particularly CO2 are gases which have long been recognised for their potential value as sustainable sources of energy. However, the processes to convert them into the desired products can be quite challenging to control. This is mainly due to the potentially unpredictable course of the reaction. Therefore, a...

New Electrolyte for Solid State Lithium-Ion Batteries

05.03.2022

Designing the perfect battery can be a challenging task, if you want to not only create a device which can store a lot of energy but is also safe. Liquid electrolytes, for example, work reliably over many cycles; however, chances are high that the battery might catch fire at some point. Therefore, scientists have turned their...
