Magnesium battery breakthrough could lead to longer EV range – Univ. of Houston

Aim is to create higher-energy batteries at a lower price, especially for electric vehicles Magnesium batteries offer promise for safely powering modern life – unlike traditional lithium ion batteries, they are not flammable or subject to exploding, but their ability to store energy has been limited, according to a press release. Researchers reported Aug. 24 […]

Flawed anti-fracking studies debunked, used by fractivists anyway

TEDX also claimed natural gas wells responsible for dangerous levels of chemicals found in air quality samples Ed. note: EnergyInDepth is an industry-funded and focused website. Despite the bias, we run these op-eds because they are generally well researched and contain plenty of links the reader can follow to do further research and come to their own

Researchers discover more efficient way to split water, produce hydrogen

Researchers say inexpensive, nontoxic catalyst could help reduce global reliance on fossil fuels Hydrogen is often considered a fuel for the future, in the form of fuel cells to power electric motors or burned in internal combustion engines, according to researchers at University of Houston. But finding a practical, inexpensive and nontoxic way to produce

Lacking evidence, anti-fracking researchers push foreign studies

Bottom line: Just because a chemical is present doesn’t mean that it’s present in harmful concentrations By Seth Whitehead, EnergyInDepth Perhaps motivated by the fact that their own research has failed to convincingly tie oil and gas development to reproductive problems, anti-fracking researchers from the University of Missouri recently released a “systemic review” of studies

Study alleges harm from fracking chemicals with zero evidence

Landmark EPA study says fracking has not led to “systemic contamination” of American drinking water supplies This week, researchers from Yale University released a study claiming that chemicals found in fracking fluids and wastewater could “possibly be associated with reproductive or developmental toxicity” in humans. The researchers analyzed certain chemicals that could possibly be used during fracking
