A new study is the first to assess the impacts of curbing only CO2 emissions—versus cutting other pollutants causing nearly half of all warming
Made of common, inexpensive, and non-toxic materials, an algae-powered battery could be a sustainable option for powering electronics
Why burn lignin when you could use it to fly an airplane? Research shows lignin-based jet fuel performs better with lower emissions than petro-fuels
The new enzyme works at lower temperatures than previous ones, which would make it greener, faster, and cheaper
With no moving parts, the solar cell-like device generates heat from electricity with a record-breaking efficiency higher than that of steam turbines
It's enough power to keep LED lightbulbs on or charge phones at night, and could offset the need for expensive batteries
Compared to today’s sorbents, the new super-porous material could absorb carbon dioxide from smokestacks at much lower cost and energy
With its use of low-cost, non-toxic materials, the new molten-salt battery could offer cheaper grid storage than rivals
The inventive, heat-regulating material is cheap and recyclable, and provides an energy-efficient and sustainable solution for food and beverage containers.
Bread-eating fungus spores produce natural fibers that can be treated to mimic cotton and leather, using far less water and energy than conventional materials.
