Meteors can help solve riddles about water

Minerals in ancient meteorites offer insights into the origin of almost three-quarters of the Earth’s surface.

Researchers unveil fire-safe fuel

Chemical engineers have designed a fuel that ignites only with the application of electric current. Since it doesn't react to flames and cannot start accidental fires during storage or transport, it is a 'safe' liquid fuel.

Engineers use computational modelling to design 'ultrastable' materials

These highly stable metal-organic frameworks could be useful for applications such as capturing greenhouse gases.

Revealed: How this waste treatment efficiently converts sewage to biogas

A new method to treat sewage can efficiently convert leftover sludge to biogas, an advance that could help communities lower their waste treatment costs while helping the environment.

Researchers genetically engineer plants to yield more vegetable oil

Scientists have successfully bioengineered an important protein in plants to increase the yield of oil from their fruits and seeds – a holy grail for the global agri-food industry.
