Plasmonic Effect

A team of nanoscientists at Rice University have derives ways of synthesising hydrogen fuel from ammonia by using a new catalyst at ambient pressures. The reason behind the conversion of ammonia to hydrogen fuel is the occurrence of a plasmonic effect that enhances the efficiency of the catalyst. The nanoparticles of the catalysis have been described as a blend of copper and minuscule traces of ruthenium Metal. Rice’s Laboratory for

Fossil Fuels replacement

As carbon emissions in Europe reach new heights, several countries in the region are on the lookout for ways of reducing these emissions. Along similar lines, an effort to fossil fuels replacement with hydrogen fuel to bring down the uncontrolled levels of carbon emissions has come to light. A total of 25 countries have resolved to dig deeper into hydrogen technologies in order to create a robust framework to combat

Wind Turbines

Several countries including the Scandinavian countries such as Norway and Sweden have enhanced their renewable energy sector through the use of wind turbines and other sources of renewable power. The next country expected to bring about a revolutionary change in its power sector through the use of wind turbines in Germany. The German government revealed that wind power, along with the energy gained from solar, biomass, and hydropower, is projected

Water Harvesting

The extraction of water from the air has been an age-old practice across several regional pockets including South America and the Middle East and Africa. Contemporary day researchers are on the quest to rejuvenate this traditional practice for water harvesting by inventing a battery that can extract up to 10 gallons of water on an hourly basis from the air. The main reasons behind the shortage of water in the

Wastewater Contaminants

The availability of potable or clean water has been an indispensable need across the globe, and several techniques and technologies have been developed to purify wastewater. The scientists at Rice University have also come up with a new technology that can help in removing the wastewater contaminants. The engineers at Rice University’s lab are in the process of developing a treatment system that can help in extracting toxins from factory
