The new, efficient technique could slash agricultural and transportation carbon emissions and be rolled out in communities and on individual farms
Taking advantage of bacteria's voracious appetite for organic materials, an engineering team devised a new twist on microbial fuel cells
With this organic molecule, inexpensive, environmentally-friendly flow batteries could hold more energy and last longer
Their novel method diverts organic waste from landfills, provides useful materials for construction or packaging—and the end product still tastes good.
Coupled with solar power, this new technology could provide lighting for skyscrapers and power for infrastructure monitoring systems, among other energy needs.
It is metal-free, it degrades on demand for recycling—and does an end-run around the ethical and environmental problems that plague lithium-ion
In a big step towards sustainable fashion, scientists create a biodegradable, carbon-capturing textile from algae
Made using a 3D printer, this is the first example of an engineered photosynthetic material that is tough enough for a t-shirt—or an artificial leaf
When researchers dug into the question, they found some unsurprising reasons—such as charging difficulty; and some unexpected ones—such as gender and dwelling type.
A team of chemical and biological engineers developed a spongy, jello-like material that absorbs clean water and spits it out when warmed by the sun
By extracting the proteins and fibers in spent grain, researchers show that we can drink our beer and eat it too
