What’s brewing in Caye Drapcho’s bioreactor may well be a fuel of the future. Drapcho, a biosystems engineer at Clemson University, is investigating a bacterium that produces hydrogen. The microbe is called Thermotoga neapolitana. And it has a taste for peaches, especially rotten ones.
A Harvard biology professor’s fascination with seafloor microbes has led to the development of a revolutionary, low-cost power system consuming garbage, compost, and other waste that could provide light for the developing world.
The US electricity distribution grid is around 100-years old and aging faster than new construction renews it while peak demand for electricity is projected to rise 19 percent nationally during the next decade--capital investments in electrical generation, transmission and distribution are forecast to grow by only 6 percent over the same period, according to the Electrical Power Research Initiative.
VIASPACE Inc. announced that fuelcellmaterials.com of Lewis Center, Ohio and VIASPACE have signed an exclusive distribution agreement for North, Central and South America for VIASPACE Energy products, beginning with VIASPACE Energy's new HS-1000 VIASENSOR, a laser based humidity sensor for gas based fuel cells that provides in-situ readings every 1.5 seconds.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy¡¦s Brookhaven National Laboratory have unveiled important details about a class of catalysts that could help improve the performance of fuel cells. With the goal of producing ¡§clean¡¨ hydrogen for fuel cell reactions in mind, the researchers determined why two next-generation catalysts including gold, cerium, titanium, and oxygen nanomaterials exhibit very high activity. Their results will be published online in the December 14, 2007, edition of the journal Science.
VIASPACE Inc. announced that Tokai Bussan Co., Ltd. of Nagoya, Japan and VIASPACE have signed a distribution contract under their broad teaming agreement of March 2007 for VIASPACE Energy's line of test equipment. Tokai Bussan has placed its initial order for the HS-1000 VIASENSOR, a laser based, humidity sensor for gas fuel cells. Tokai Bussan's initial focus will be immediate sales to large manufacturers of fuel cells and fuel cell test stations, as well as research of the needs of major automobile corporations in Japan.
