Enzymes full of energy
Inspired by the photosynthesis performed by plants, researchers have developed a new catalyst for producing hydrogen from water. This is the promise of an entirely new energy, clean and sustainable.
Like a fish in water
The company Eel Energy has designed an innovative tidal turbine that works with same ripple as the fish. It helps produce energy in any aquatic environment : oceans or rivers, even with low currents.
Plants for Green Chemistry
Some rare plants have the ability to decontaminate soil. Extracting natural chemicals from these species brings new efficient and ecological catalysts for industry. This is the revolution of green chemistry.
