Waste coffee grounds offer new source of biodiesel fuel
Researchers in Nevada are reporting that waste coffee grounds can provide a cheap, abundant, and environmentally friendly source of biodiesel fuel for powering cars and trucks. Their study has been published online in the American Chemical Society's (ACS) Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, a bi-weekly publication. View News Article (2008-12-11)

Ceramic microreactors developed for on-site hydrogen production
Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have designed and built ceramic microreactors for the on-site reforming of hydrocarbon fuels, such as propane, into hydrogen for use in fuel cells and other portable power sources. View News Article (2006-09-20)

Could hydrogen vehicles take over as the 'green' car of choice?
Now that car makers have demonstrated through hybrid vehicle success that consumers want less-polluting tailpipes, they are shifting even greener.  View News Article (2014-11-20)

Component of asphalt eyed as new fuel source
The pavement material that cars drive on may wind up in their fuel tanks as scientists seek ways of transforming asphaltenes - the main component of asphalt - into an abundant new source of fuel. View News Article (2009-09-24)

Tried and true recipes
Nuclear reactor technology research dwindled away when nuclear power fell out of favor several decades ago. Renewed interest in fission-based energy means knowledge gained in past research is relevant again.  View News Article (2011-03-07)

Researchers collaborate to understand phenomena controlling PEM fuel cell performance, durability
Two researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are working to understand several key phenomena that control hydrogen-fueled PEM (proton exchange membrane or polymer electrolyte membrane) fuel cells. One, Ken S. Chen, is developing computational models to describe the phenomena while the other, Mike Hickner, is performing physical experimentation. View News Article (2006-01-27)

UK petrol-buying behaviour probed by Imperial researchers
New research out today by Imperial College researchers shows that increasing petrol price reduces fuel consumption - but rising incomes and falls in other motoring costs are presently increasing the demand for petrol and the amount of traffic on UK roads. The study, carried out by Professor Stephen Glaister and Dr Dan Graham of the department of civil and environmental engineering at Imperial,... View News Article (2000-09-29)

Pellets of power designed to deliver hydrogen for tomorrow's vehicles
Hydrogen may prove to be the fuel of the future in powering the effi cient, eco-friendly fuel cell vehicles of tomorrow. View News Article (2007-08-22)

Discovery of new molecule can lead to more efficient rocket fuel
Trinitramid - that's the name of the new molecule that may be a component in future rocket fuel. View News Article (2010-12-22)

Researchers discover gene mutation thought to control energy levels
This study focused on the gene for AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase), which controls the amount of energy in our cells by becoming active when fuel stores start to deplete, such as during exercise. View News Article (2007-09-19)
