Scientists find green way to turn CO2 into fuel with sunlight
Scientists in Korea and the United States developed a material that harnesses solar energy to efficiently turn carbon dioxide (CO2) into hydrocarbons such as methane, a gas fuel for heating, cooking and powering vehicles.
Hydrogen engine adds to future green transportation fleet
Hydrogen will help make fossil fuels obsolete in future transportation, according to Korean scientists who developed the country's first hydrogen-powered car engine, Friday.
Scientists develop lampshade coating to combat indoor air pollutants
Scientists in Korea developed a coating that can be sprayed or pasted onto existing lampshades to clean up air pollutants at home, in offices and in factories.
World to see more back-to-back heavy rain, heat waves: climate change study
Consecutive extreme rainfall and heat waves are likely to become more frequent in the future around the world given the ongoing trajectory of global warming, according to a recent study.
Greenhouse harnesses solar energy to decarbonize farming
In a greenhouse in the southwestern Korean city of Naju, bell peppers, tomatoes, apples and mangos are being grown at their ideal temperatures. As the farm runs, scientists remotely monitor real-time data such as electricity consumption from regulating the indoor atmosphere.
Scientists make robot that can decompose into liquid
When a military robot entered an enemy camp to collect intelligence, it was accidentally detected and captured by soldiers there. But after it was brought to a lab for investigation, all that was left was a puzzling puddle of oily liquid.
How safe is wastewater discharged from Fukushima?
As Japan started releasing treated wastewater from the Fukushima nuclear power plant last Thursday, scientists are calling on the public to take advice from experts in health and radiological protection in order to dispel myths and allay overblown fears of contamination.
Busan hopes to spearhead growth in southern Korea with World Expo 2030 bid
Right in front of the potential venue of the World Expo 2030, the southern Korean port city of Busan is set to start building the world's first floating city later next year on the waters off the North Port. A community of 12,000 local and international residents will live on a flood-proof buoyant platform with “zero waste” systems after its completion expected by 2027.
World scientists see no signs of superconductivity in Korea's LK-99
Laboratories worldwide are working to replicate a material that Korean scientists claimed to be a room-temperature superconductor. But so far, international researchers have yet to observe signs of superconductivity in LK-99 produced in their laboratories.
More powerful, durable fuel cells pave way for future drones, urban aerial vehicles: KIST
Researchers at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) have developed a new way to make fuel cells that can generate 40 percent more power than conventional cells of the same size, making them ideal for drones and urban aerial vehicles, they said Thursday.
