  • Novel electrode boosts green hydrogen research

    Polymer electrolyte membrane water electrolysers (PEMWEs) convert electricity and water into hydrogen and oxygen using two electrodes separated by a solid polymer electrolyte. This promising technology could be coupled to intermittent renewable energy sources to generate hydrogen for efficient energy storage and low-carbon transportation. PEMWEs are more efficient than currently-used alkaline ...

  • Small boost of electricity aids natural clean-up of PCB contaminants

    Applying a low voltage to polluted river sediment can boost microbes’ natural ability to degrade harmful polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contaminants, according to a new study. The approach could be a cost-effective, sustainable strategy to bioremediate polluted sites. PCBs are persistent contaminants as they remain for long periods in the environment, particularly in water, soil and ...
