Science Daily Snips

Hopes for cleaner, safer energy:

Quicker, Easier Way To Make Coal Cleaner "Construction of new coal-fired power plants in the United States is in danger of coming to a standstill, partly due to the high cost of the requirement — whether existing or anticipated — to capture all emissions of carbon dioxide [...] Instead of capturing all of its CO2 emissions, plants could capture a significant fraction of those emissions with less costly changes in plant design and operation [...]"

Making Gases More Transportable "Chemists at the University of Liverpool have developed a way of converting methane gas into a powder form [...] made out of a mixture of silica and water which can soak up large quantities of methane molecules [...] might be easily transported or used as a vehicle fuel."
