Argonne materials scientists pursue a new generation of batteries

Kristen Mally Dean of Argonne National Laboratory writes on how scientists are pursuing a new generation of batteries. “’Solid-state batteries can store more energy, are safer, and take up less space,’ said Jessica Durham, of Argonne’s Applied Materials division, who works with fellow materials scientist Albert Lipson to produce innovative solids to replace liquid materials...

Remora is ready to roll with carbon capture for trucks

"Climate tech solutions can sometimes seem vexingly distant on the horizon, but as climate impacts bear down hard, the urgency of the problem is palpable.

We don’t know where all the lead pipes are. This tool helps find them

'You can get the lead out sooner, so people are living with lead for less time, and there’s the money avoided,' says Schwartz. 'Thousands of dollars per dig that can be saved. And that money doesn’t just sit, that’s money going to active replacement of lead at a neighbor’s house.' Cities typically need to remove thousands of service lines. In Trenton, New Jersey, for example, where BlueConduit is working now, there’s an estimated 37,000 lead service lines."

Can Nuclear Fusion Put the Brakes on Climate Change?

Rivka Galchen of The New Yorker writes on the benefits of nuclear fusion in addressing climate change. “Fusion, theoretically, has no scarcity issues; our planet has enough of fusion’s primary fuels, heavy hydrogen and lithium, which are found in seawater, to last thirty million years. Fusion requires no major advances in batteries, it would be...
