Efficient, Stable and Eco-Friendly Thermoelectric Material Discovered

Efficient, Stable and Eco-Friendly Thermoelectric Material Discovered

Waste heat is a very promising source of energy conservation and reuse, by means of converting this heat into electricity—a process called thermoelectric conversion. Commercially available thermoelectric conversion devices are synthesized using rare metals. While these are quite efficient, they are expensive and, in the majority of cases, utilize toxic materials. Both these factors have led to these converters being of limited use.

Can the Plastics Industry Become a Carbon-Capture Leader?

Can the Plastics Industry Become a Carbon-Capture Leader?

One of the major environmental issues facing the planet today is the rising levels of plastic consumption and waste. As carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions also soar, the emerging carbon capture and utilization (CCU) industry propose a solution for both issues: creating lower-carbon, degradable polymers using CO2 emissions as the feedstock.
