nano-spike CO2 ethanol

Transform CO2 (+ water + electricity) into ethanol fuel by "nano-spike" catalysis!

Nano-Spike catalysis; discovery of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory made a little ... by chance! The process makes it possible to obtain ethanol from CO2, electricity and water in the presence of a specific nano-catalyst called Nano-Spike. The reported return on electricity is 60 to 70% which is acceptable provided renewable electricity is used (the process [...]

Lipo Lithium Battery

Electrical transport (Lipo) VS thermal (gasoline): criteria of choice of a battery and comparative calculations

The performance of electric transport depends strongly on the quality of their batteries. It is currently the real Achilles heel that limits the development of electric propulsion, both in road transport, maritime and ... that air obviously. We present to you a brief state of the art performance Lithium-Polymer batteries currently on the [...]
