"Passing the threshold for the Paris Agreement's entry into force is a historic moment, marking a new era of global consensus on climate change action. This agreement will further accelerate development of a multi-trillion dollar market for clean energy technology solutions that reduce heat-trapping emissions," Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said.
Starting materials developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory may be candidates for advanced nuclear fuels.
Using glycerol from a used cooking oil-to-biodiesel fuel conversion, engineering students developed a soap that is used to clean campus lab equipment and wash hands.
The results of the study suggest the need to develop a new culture-independent, genome-based coliform test to ensure water quality.
Dalhousie and McGill university researchers, along with 53 colleagues, studied almost 2,000 coral reef locations to discover that the loss of species can have far-reaching consequences and suggests human population is to blame.
Kansas State University researchers applied a carbon mass balance and found that the current algae diesel system will not eliminate U.S. dependence on petroleum diesel.
A pilot program will test the ability of proprietary enzyme technologies to reduce the environmental impact of industrial byproducts.
Researchers added small amounts of tungsten to the drinking water of laboratory mice and found that the material concentrated in their spleen and bones.
The company's study suggests that technologies, such as re-injection or pipeline development, exist to capture and use the gas instead of flaring it into the atmosphere.
The 18-year study has resulted in a model that addresses competition and fecundity under climate variables.
The technology uses electricity-generating coatings that are "sprayed" on glass surfaces; the solar coatings are less than 1/10th the thickness of "thin" films and make use of the world’s smallest functional solar cells.
Two reports from Citi and Ceres predict U.S. car manufacturers will see greater sales than their global competitors.
In three to five years, environmental professionals could be using nanogenerators as a power source for sensors used in infrastructure monitoring, according to researchers.
The study led by a Seventh Generation chemist shows that manufacturers who desire to use less petroleum-derived carbon can incorporate radiocarbon dating per ASTM D6866-10 to verify the content of raw materials and finished products.
Although the long-term health effects are not known, soldiers stationed in Iraq don't have the protection of air quality and toxic heavy metals regulations.
Birmingham study suggests that birds may not be looking at what obstacles are straight ahead and some of them may not be able to slow their flying speed.
The peer-reviewed research journal receives about 300 new submissions annually.
Bleach significantly reduced the toxicity of ricin within five minutes, noted Lauren Jackson, a research food technologist with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in Summit-Argo, Ill.
Although the process is costly, researchers from Brazil said it takes just one pound of nano-cellulose to produce 100 pounds of super-strong, lightweight plastic.
Researchers at the U.K.'s Cambridge University mixed samples of waste oil with a highly microwave-absorbent material and then heated the mixture to convert nearly 90 percent of the samples into fuel.
