2022-09-19 Comparative Study on the Energy Efficiency of Offshore Supply Chain Systems for Liquid Hydrogen, Ammonia, Methanol, and Liquid Methane

Currently, countries worldwide are actively promoting climate neutrality or carbon neutrality, which has led to the rapid development of renewable energy. However, renewable electricity faces the issue of uneven spatial and temporal distribution. Storing renewable electricity in chemical form and transporting it as renewable energy carriers to regions or countries with high energy demand can facilitate the redistribution of renewable resources. Therefore, the offshore supply chain of renewable energy carriers is crucial for the global industry's comprehensive transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

2020-07-10 Hansong Cheng: Normal Temperature and Pressure Organic Liquid Hydrogen Storage Technology Creates a New Era of Hydrogen Energy Utilization!

Hydrogen is known as the "ultimate energy" and is internationally recognized as a clean energy source, but it has not yet been applied on a large scale. The fundamental reason is that hydrogen has the characteristics of “being untamed”: it is flammable, explosive, and difficult to be stored and transported under normal temperature and pressure. The former U.S. Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, summarized it as one of the four major problems in the use of hydrogen energy. Therefore, breaking through the bottleneck of hydrogen application has become adream goal for the scientific community. The team of Prof. Dr. Hansong Cheng, Distinguished Professor of China University of Geosciences (CUG), has successfully overcome the technological bottleneck of large-scale application of hydrogen energy, and developed the technology of organic liquid hydrogen storage under normal temperature and pressure.

2020-07-10 Holding the “Brush”, Showing You the Colors of “3D Printing”

The colors of flowers often come from pigments, where pigments absorb or reflect specific wavelengths of light to create colors. On the other hand, the colors of butterflies or chameleons originate from subtle structures on their bodies, such as nano "photonic crystals" (PC), which involve light scattering, diffraction, and interference. This phenomenon is known as "structural color." Structural color offers several advantages, including resistance to fading, water washing, and adjustable colors. However, currently popular 3D printing technology has not yet been able to easily and efficiently achieve structural color.
