One of the main contributors to plastic pollution is the ubiquity of difficult-to-recycle plastic packaging such as plastic bags, milk bottles, and sachets. Because they are such a pain to recycle, most of these single-use plastics end up in landfills or waterways, polluting the … [Read more...] about Scientists use microwaves to turn plastic waste into clean hydrogen
As the body of evidence grows about the heavy environmental footprint of flying, airplane manufacturers have started to ramp up their efforts to decarbonize the industry. In a bid to showcase its plans for zero-emissions air travel, Airbus has recently unveiled three … [Read more...] about Airbus unveils three hydrogen-powered zero-emission airplanes
Somewhere in the vast ocean, a little boat covered in solar panels is doing something extraordinary: making its own hydrogen fuel from the seawater underneath it. Built as a proof of concept, the boat hopes to make a case for hydrogen as a clean-energy alternative to fossil … [Read more...] about This 100% energy self-sufficient boat transforms seawater into hydrogen fuel
Hydrogen fuel has seemingly fallen off the radar considering all the hype that surrounded this potentially sustainable fuel source in past years. Other than a blatant lack of infrastructure, a big problem with hydrogen fuel is that we haven’t figured out a way to produce hydrogen … [Read more...] about Could a trash-to-hydrogen plant realize the dream of green hydrogen fuel?
Production of hydrogen fuel is a key goal towards the development of sustainable energy practices, but this process does not have feasible methods yet, with it currently being excessively energy- and water-intensive. Now, a team from the Tokyo University of Science believes … [Read more...] about Scientists have found a new, safe, and efficient way of producing hydrogen
