The Importance of Battery Recycling For Our Future

What do you do when your batteries are dead? How do you get rid of rechargeable electronics when they no longer hold a charge? Battery recycling is mandated in many areas, but consumers don’t always understand the process. If your hauler tells you not to put batteries in your recycling bin, you probably think they […]

Evergreen needles act as air quality monitors

Every tree, even an evergreen, can be an air quality monitor. That’s the conclusion of researchers who measured the magnetism of particulate matter on the needles of evergreen trees. That measurement, they found, correlated to general air quality, suggesting that analysis of the needles — a relatively simple and low-cost process — could provide a high-resolution, year-round picture of air quality.

Land development in New Jersey continues to slow

(Rutgers University) Land development in New Jersey has slowed dramatically since the 2008 Great Recession, but it’s unclear how the COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to fight societal and housing inequality will affect future trends, according to a Rutgers co-authored report.

Splitting water molecules for a renewable energy future

Chemists are working on energy storage and conversion research. This work is part of a new study that solves a key, fundamental barrier in the electrochemical water splitting process where the Lin Lab demonstrates a new technique to reassemble, revivify, and reuse a catalyst that allows for energy-efficient water splitting.

Chemistry’s Feng Lin Lab is splitting water molecules for a renewable energy future

(Virginia Tech) Feng Lin, an assistant professor of chemistry in the Virginia Tech College of Science, is focusing on energy storage and conversion research. This work is part of a new study published in the journal Nature Catalysis that solves a key, fundamental barrier in the electrochemical water splitting process where the Lin Lab demonstrates a new technique to reassemble, revivify, and reuse a catalyst that allows for energy-efficient water splitting.
