New Modifier Increases Efficiency of Perovskite Solar Cells

New Modifier Increases Efficiency of Perovskite Solar Cells

Scientists have modified perovskite-based solar cells using MXenes -- thin two-dimensional titanium carbides with high electrical conductivity. The MXenes-based modified cells showed superior performance, with power conversion efficiency exceeding 19% (the reference demonstrated 17%) and improved stabilized power output with respect to reference devices.

Consortium Launches Zenid - Sustainable Aviation Fuel from Air

Consortium Launches Zenid - Sustainable Aviation Fuel from Air

The aviation industry is responsible for 3% of global manmade CO2 emissions and has the challenging objective to reduce these emissions in the next decade significantly. Unlike road transport, aviation cannot switch to electric or hydrogen propulsion yet and therefore depends on sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). SAF purely made from air via direct air capture technology and renewable electricity offers a carbon-neutral solution suitable to meet the industry's high demands for renewable fuels in the future.
