Novel high capacity anode material for Li-ion batteries: hydroxylamine hydrochloride

Green Car Congress

Researchers from Ningbo University in China report the first use of hydroxylamine hydrochloride (H 3 NOHCl) as anode material for lithium-ion batteries in a paper in the Journal of Power Sources. Electrochemical testing shows that H 3 NOHCl with particle size of 4–12 ?m m can deliver an initial charge capacity of 1018.6 2014.08.065.

It can be a starting point of some dangerous attacks,” Mao Li , a student in Mingoo Seok ’s lab at Columbia University, told engineers at ISSCC. If it picks up that signal it engages what Lao called a protection engine, logic that can guard against the attack by, for example, instructing the processor to encrypt its data traffic.

Study: countries seeking to cut CO2 emissions must get a handle on city-level emissions

Green Car Congress

Prof Dabo Guan, professor of climate change economics at the University of East Anglia (UEA), led the research, along with Dr Yuli Shan from UEA’s School of International Development. Everything practical that you would need to do to reduce emissions happens at a city level. Yuli Shan, Dabo Guan, Klaus Hubacek, Bo Zheng, Steven J.

Materials science as key enabler for clean energy transition

Green Car Congress

If you don’t change direction, you will end up where you are heading,” said Lao Tzu, the father of Taoism. Where are we heading? Energy use is projected to climb to 629 quad BTUs by 2020, and 813 quad BTUs by 2040. The global emissions of CO 2 doubled from 1975 to 2015, and are projected to triple by 2040 if we stay on our present course4.
