Ammonia decomposition for hydrogen economy, improvement in hydrogen extraction efficiency

"...For the implementation of the effective hydrogen economy in the forthcoming years, hydrogen produced from sources like coal and petroleum must be transported from its production sites to the end user often over long distances and to achieve successful hydrogen trade between countries. Drs. Hyuntae Sohn and Changwon Yoon and their team at the Center for Hydrogen-fuel Cell Research of the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) have announced a novel nanometal catalyst, constituting 60% less *ruthenium (Ru), an expensive precious metal used to extract hydrogen via ammonia decomposition..."

Graphene made from old tires helps strengthen concrete

"...Last year the team demonstrated the technique using waste products like food or plastic – and now, they’ve moved onto discarded tires. The Rice team says that previous efforts to convert tires directly into graphene didn’t yield the best results, so for the new study they turned to the material left over after they’ve undergone a common recycling process. Pyrolysis involves burning tires in a low-oxygen environment, which creates an oil that’s very useful for a range of industrial processes..."

LETTER – Open design refrigeration units increase greenhouse gas emissions unnecessarily

"...Show your stores that “sight lines” and “ease of access” matter less than good environmental practices, and that you are willing to open and close the door on a display case. Tell your stores that you appreciate (or not!) their efforts to reduce their contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. Drop a line to your government representative supporting better refrigeration practices– and make your mother happy!..."

New porous material promising for making renewable energy from water

"...One prospective source of renewable energy is hydrogen gas produced from water with the aid of sunlight. Researchers at Linköping University, Sweden, have developed a material, nanoporous cubic silicon carbide, that exhibits promising properties to capture solar energy and split water for hydrogen gas production. The study has been published in the journal ACS Nano..."

Oceans were stressed preceding abrupt, prehistoric global warming

"...The research was published online last week (March 4) in the journal Geology. This is the first study to examine the calcium isotope composition of foraminifera to reconstruct conditions before and across the PETM and the third recent Northwestern study to find that ocean acidification -- due to volcanic carbon dioxide emissions -- preceded major prehistoric environmental catastrophes, such as mass extinctions, oceanic anoxic events and periods of intense global warming..."
