Catalyst for the carbon-free production of hydrogen gas from ammonia

            Credit: Katsutoshi Nagaoka (Phys.org)—Hydrogen has the potential to provide an alternative, clean energy source, particularly as applied to fuel cell technology. Current fuel sources involve carbon-containing fossil fuels or carbon-containing organic molecules, which result in the production of excess CO2, a greenhouse gas. Several initiatives, including a national initiative […]

Study from MIT Energy Initiative will explore the future of transportation

“Mobility of the Future” study examines how developments in technology, fuel, infrastructure, policy, and consumer preference will drive transportation changes. Emily Dahl | MIT Energy Initiative Energy demand for transportation — which today accounts for approximately one-fifth of the world’s energy consumption — is expected to rise substantially as a growing middle class in emerging […]
