Hyundai is mass producing the first hydrogen-fueled car in the US

Why Hydrogen? Hydrogen is the key to a future of sustainable motoring. Making up approximately 75% of the universe we live in, it’s in abundance compared to the finite fossil fuels used by combustion engine cars. The process of passing hydrogen through a fuel cell creates energy much more efficiently than the chemicals used in gasoline. […]

More Efficient Method of Producing Hydrogen Fuel

Scientists have come up with a more efficient way to split ocean water and turn it into sustainable, clean hydrogen fuel. They created a flexible plastic film that acts as the catalyst to begin splitting ocean water, without requiring the high energy input that current methods need. Using this new technology, as little as five […]

E. coli is capable of producing a diesel substitute

Strains of E. coli bacteria are capable of producing a biofuel almost identical to diesel. The importance of the discovery hinges around the idea of “drop-in” fuels — that existing technology which runs on diesel would not need to be modified in order to utilise the biofuel meaning the costs to business of switching energy […]

Fuel

Is Bio Fuel The Future? Hi its Sam with another environmentally focused post. I embed this documentary called ‘Fuel’. It highlights how the use of oil, particularly ‘petrol’ is pointless. “Eleven years in the making, FUEL is the in-depth personal journey of filmmaker and eco-evangelist Josh Tickell, who takes us on a hip, fast-paced road […]
