Sustainable Development Goal
North Carolina State University researchers have developed what is, to date, the most efficient means of converting sewage sludge and restaurant grease into methane. After treating sewage, wastewater treatment plants are left with solid sludge, called biosolids. For years, utilities have treated biosolids with microbes that produce methane. In recent years, utilities have been adding grease interceptor...

tiny home house boat on water
According to Scott, the ingenious floating home creation was inspired by his need to explore the world on his own terms, “After wildfires in the Fall of 2017, I sold my home in Santa Rosa, Northern California, and moved to the Palm Springs area, Southern California,” he explained. “This houseboat is a way for me to spend...

More than 1.7 billion people worldwide still don’t have a reliable electricity connection. For many of them, solar power is their potential energy saviour – at least when the sun is shining. Technology to store excess solar power during the dark hours is improving. But what if we could generate electricity from the cold night sky? Researchers...

A French startup is poised to solve most of the world’s recycling conundrums with a new process that uses enzymes to break down the most problematic PET plastics (like contaminated black food trays) into a form so pure that it can be used to make clear water bottles that look and act like those made...

A widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels can instead be made by an “artificial leaf” that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water—and it could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to petrol. The carbon-neutral device sets a new benchmark in the field of solar fuels, after researchers...

Gravitricity develops winch and hoist system to store energy at half the cost of lithium-ion batteries  A full-scale project would drop 24 weights to a depth of 800 metres to produce enough electricity to power 63,000 homes for more than an hour. Photograph: Murdo Macleod/The Guardian Britain’s cheapest “virtual battery” could be created by hoisting...
