3D-printed corals could improve bioenergy and help coral reefs

Researchers from Cambridge University and University of California San Diego have 3D printed coral-inspired structures that are capable of growing dense populations of microscopic algae. Their results, reported in the journal Nature Communications, open the door to new bio-inspired materials and their applications for coral conservation.In the ocean, corals and algae have an intricate symbiotic…



Wind Turbine Facts

Wind turbines that rotate on a horizontal axis are called Horizontal-Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT). This type of wind turbine is the most commonly built and used today. Wind turbines that are used on wind farms usually have three blades, with tips that can reach 200 miles per hour, and are white to make them more…





USDA ERS – U.S. Bioenergy Statistics

Society has just begun to tap new renewable sources of energy from agriculture and forestlands on a commercial scale that impacts energy markets.  Among these sources are biofuels, a small but important component of current fuel consumption in the U.S. transport sector.  In 2012, biofuels accounted for roughly 7.1 percent of total transport fuel consumption,…
