An additive for conventional fuel comprised of oxygenated organic compounds could help reduce the release of pollutants into the atmosphere during the combustion of fossil fuels. Researchers have now established how these potential additives decompose under combustion-relevant conditions.
The growth of solar energy has been grossly underestimated in the results of the models of the IPCC. Costs have dropped and infrastructures expanded much faster than even the most optimistic models had assumed.
Using a design intended for a lithium-CO2 battery, researchers have developed a way to isolate solid carbon dust from gaseous carbon dioxide, with the potential to also separate out oxygen gas through the same method.
