Physicists just discovered that a dissolved carbon dioxide could recharge a battery. Here's how.
Metal particles may just be the clean fuel of the future. Scientists have found that metal powders could provide a more viable long-term replacement for fossil fuels than any other widely discussed alternatives.
Researchers at the RMIT University in Australia have created a new method for detecting varying levels of nitrogen dioxide, which is a harmful air pollutant.
The shape of a bird's wing depends largely on its ancestors. Scientists have found that the shape of bird wings is influenced more by how closely related species are to one another than by flight style
Researchers have created a new technology which will convert alcohols, such as ethanol straight to hydrocarbons, which can be used as as fossil fuel alternatives, according to a study at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Scientists have taken a step forward when it comes to creating hydrogen as fuel. They've created a highly efficient catalyst that could ease the way to a hydrogen economy.
We may be in for massive sea level rises if we continue to burn fossil fuels.
Fossil fuel emissions may actually complicate radiocarbon dating.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed an internal combustion engine that emits less than half the CO2 compared to a regular engine without compromising performance. This corresponds to fuel consumption of less than 2.4 l per 100 km (or 118 mpg / miles-per-gallon). This natural gas-diesel hybrid e...
When petroleum companies abandon an oil well, more than half the reservoir's oil is usually left behind as too difficult to recover. Now, however, much of the residual oil can be recovered with the help of nanoparticles and a simple law of physics.
