(Image Credit: Patrick Cullen / Gyen Ming Angel)   Researchers at Queen Mary University of London and University College London (UCL) have come up with a new design for hydrogen fuel cell catalysts using graphene. They demonstrated that this graphene-based catalyst was more durable than other catalysts while m ...

As the global population grows, the demand for electricity increases, but these demands are hard to meet in developing countries. Danish startup Seaborg Technologies believes it has the solution using mini nuclear reac ...
Progress towards greener energy sources continues, and this time, the main source of energy is a combination of plants. Image from jamesdysonaward.org, comparison between Aureus and traditional solar panel   Nature is action-packed with resources we can use as energy, and researchers around the world are always looking for ways to exploit them further. One such researcher is Carvey Ehren Maigue, a 27-year old student of Mapua University in the Philippines. Carvey invented a source of energ ...
A team of researchers discovered a way to produce hydrogen through electrolysis that will make the process cheaper and more efficient. Everyday science works to find cleaner energy sources so that we would let go of the carbon-emitting energy sources we are using now, reduce our carbon footprint and save the environment. By now, everyone has heard of the most favored renewable energy sources (wind, water, sun), but there is one “clean” energy source that is slowly turning into an eco ...
Kristal Ambrose formed the Bahamas Plastic Movement to help eliminate single-use plastics. Ambrose's Bahamas Plastic Movement group cleans up the island's beaches. (Image credit: Dorlan Curtis Jr. and Jawanza Small)   Despite its glistening waters and sandy beaches, the Bahamas face a serious plastic pollution issue. Wanting to protect her home, Kristal Ambrose formed the Bahamas Plastic Movement to raise awareness and encourage the powers that be to eliminate single-use plastic items. Her ...
