New tool for battery research

For a long time it was nearly impossible to examine the reactions at the anode and the cathode of lithium-ion batteries separately. As part of his doctoral thesis, Michael Metzger, scientist at the Chair of Technical Electrochemistry of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), developed an innovative battery test cell, which can do just that. For his innovative work, he was awarded the Strategy & Presidential Award 2017. While lithium-ion bat...

Sequencing of Green Alga Genome Provides Blueprint to Advance Clean Energy, Bioproducts

Plant biologists have sequenced the genome of a particularly promising species of green alga, providing a blueprint for new discoveries in producing sustainable biofuels, antioxidants, and other valuable bioproducts. The researchers targeted Chromochloris zofingiensis, a single-celled green alga that has drawn commercial interest as one of the highest producers of the best lipids for biofuel production. The team of scientists, led by resear...
