Researchers at Princeton and Rice universities have combined iron, copper, and a simple LED light to demonstrate a low-cost technique that could be key to distributing hydrogen, a fuel that packs high amounts of energy with no carbon pollution.

Researchers create green fuel with the flip of a light switch

Sustainable fuels are based on green hydrogen and carbon dioxide - and should make a significant contribution to decarbonising sectors such as aviation, where fossil fuels are particularly difficult to replace.

Sustainable kerosene: accelerating production on an industrial scale

Synthetic fuels from renewable energies can be produced in large quantities and can already be used in almost all vehicles

Game changer in the fight against climate change: reFuels suitable for everyday use

Gas turbines are widely used for power generation and aircraft propulsion. According to the laws of thermodynamics, the higher the temperature of an engine, the higher the efficiency. Because of these laws, there is an emerging interest in increasing turbines’ operating temperature.

Discovering materials for gas turbine engines through efficient predictive frameworks

DLR supports new test flight programme by Airbus and its subsidiary Airbus UpNext for CO2-emission-free flight. The 'Blue Condor' project investigates the effects of contrails from hydrogen engines.

Analysing the contrails of the future

Producing synthesis gas, a precursor of a variety of fuels and chemicals, no longer requires natural gas, coal or biomass.

Solar-powered chemistry uses carbon dioxide and water to make feedstock for fuels, chemicals

By making use of steam and iron pellets, hydrogen can be created with the only byproduct being rust and heat. By regenerating the rust with hydrogen, a completely circular, compact, safe and energy efficient hydrogen storage method is created.

Iron-based Hydrogen Storage

Alex van de Steeg mapped CO2 plasmas to figure out the reactions at play when CO2 splits into other molecules at temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun.

How to convert carbon dioxide into the building blocks for fuel

Deploying a technique that promises to supercharge the development of biofuels, researchers at Princeton University have found a way to make yeast cultures glow when producing next generation fuels that could power cars and airplanes.

Glowing yeast lights the way to better biofuels

In this episode, we talk about additive manufacturing being used to create fuel injection nozzles for marine applications and the subterranean 3D printed drone being used to combat food insecurity.

Podcast: 3D Printing the Engines and Drones of the Future

New green fuels and a goal of increasing performance can make it attractive to 3D print parts of the large cargo ship engines.

3D-printed engine parts can make cargo ships more eco-friendly

Initial findings from a world-first study of the impact of 100 percent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) on both engines of a commercial jet have provided promising early results.

First in-flight 100 percent sustainable-fuels emissions study of passenger jet shows early promise

Australia's plans to produce hydrogen using fossil fuels carries significant risks and could create an industry that leads to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions, researchers from The Australian National University (ANU) warn.
