Diamond nanothreads could be used to store energy

Researchers at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) have proposed the design of a new carbon nanostructure made from diamond nanothreads that could one day be used for mechanical energy storage, wearable technologies and biomedical applications. Dr Haifei Zhan, from the QUT Centre for Materials Science, and his colleagues successfully modelled the mechanical energy storage and release

Inside Eastman’s moonshot goal for endlessly circular plastics

GreenBiz Group

May 11, 2020

Inside Eastman’s moonshot goal for endlessly circular plastics Joel Makower Mon, 05/11/2020 - 00:44 At first glance, the sprawling industrial site, covering roughly 900 acres in Kingsport, Tennessee, appears to be just another chemical manufacturing facility. There are hundreds of buildings and countless miles of pipes, conveyors, distillers, cooling towers, valves, pumps,

Heat-efficient solar cell created by researchers

A next-generation solar cell that can maintain efficiency in the heat has been developed by engineers at Iowa State University. This solar cell takes advantage of the electro-optical properties of perovskite materials, and the materials are much more stable at high temperatures. One problem with the current generation of silicon solar cells is their relatively low efficiency at converting solar
