Startup generates Hydrogen from water

I reported previously (see here) on projects by Israel Technion scientists to extract Hydrogen from water to generate a cheap, non-polluting fuel. Now, their E-TAC (electrochemical thermally activated chemical) technology has been spun off into a new Israeli startup H2Pro. … Continue reading

Electricity from bacteria

Researchers from Israel’s Technion have developed an energy-producing system from photosynthetic bacteria, also known as cyanobacteria. The bacteria use photosynthesis to generate energy from sunlight. This energy can be harvested as hydrogen and then used to generate electricity. https://www.timesofisrael.com/electricity-from-germs-could-be-the-next-big-thing-say-researchers/

Using spinach to generate fuel

I reported previously (Apr 10) that Technion-Israel scientists used sunlight to split water into Hydrogen and Oxygen.  They have progressed further and developed this into a bio-photo-electro-chemical (BPEC) cell, using a simple membrane extract from spinach leaves. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/09/160922085743.htm http://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms12552

A radical new catalyst

Technion scientists have developed the alpha hydrogen nitroxyl radical – a new stable class of chemical that encourages other chemicals to react together without being affected itself. This has major implications for chemical and medical industries including plastics, agriculture, biochemistry … Continue reading
