Czech researchers developed self-propelled microrobots that decompose complex solid pollutants, such as single use and disposable textile fibers.
Cement made from plant oil and waste sulfur
Researchers combine waste vegetable oil and sulfur to create an eco-friendly, sturdy and lightweight cement substitute that can be remelted as often as desired.
Compressed air cars for urban transportation
Researchers have increased the efficiency of compressed air cars with the aid of phase change materials for heat recovery, making them a viable carbon-free alternative for future passenger cars.
The effects of ocean warming
Marine biologist Ian Bouyoucos investigated blacktip reef sharks in French Polynesia. In this interview, he reveals that not everything in this paradise is as it should be thanks to climate change.
Breaking down a cell’s barriers with a medicine-carrying nano-submarine
Researchers have designed a gold-coated nanomotor that can be controlled by infrared irradiation for precise drug delivery in cells.
Cellulose could play an important role in future green electronics
Cellulose-based energy storage devices could provide a viable solution to creating sustainable, inexpensive electronics.
A non-toxic, room-temperature liquid-metal battery
Researchers created liquid-metal battery that works at room-temperature. It promises more power than today’s lithium-ion batteries and can charge and deliver energy several times faster.
Mussels and chameleons inspire a new type of sensor
Scientists design a stretchable, adhesive, self-healing material that can change color as a result of movement for real-time motion sensors.
One step closer to producing green hydrogen fuels
Researchers design a photo-electrochemical reactor to produce affordable “green” hydrogen.
