  • Clean Utilization of Coal

    There are three options available for obtaining a clean energy system: clean the fuel; clean the processes; or clean the products. All of these methods are reviewed in Clean Utilization of Coal, which is divided into six parts: I. Structure and Activity of Coal; II. Factors Effecting Environmental Balance; III. Pre-Usage Cleaning Operations ...

  • Catalysts for Alcohol-Fuelled Direct Oxidation Fuel Cells

    Energy and environment issues are of paramount importance to achieve the sustainable development of our society. Alcohol-fuelled direct oxidation fuel cells (DOFCs), as a clean and highly-efficient energy harvesting engine, have attracted intensive research activity over recent decades. Electrocatalysts are the material at the very heart of the ...
