Greetings from the Department of Energy Resources Engineering!
STANFORD, CA (KGO) -- Geothermal energy is getting a boost from nanotechnology. A group at Stanford has made particles tiny enough to pass through rocks. This could make it easier to build man-made geysers for electric power.
A hydrogen-rich compound discovered by Stanford researchers is packed with promise of helping overcome one of the biggest hurdles to using hydrogen for fuel—namely, how do you stuff enough hydrogen into a volume that is small enough to be portable and practical for powering a car? The newly discovered material is a high-pressure form of ammonia borane, a solid material which itself is already imbued with ample hydrogen.
