Methane-consuming bacteria could be the future of fuel

By oxidizing methane and converting it to methanol, methanotrophic bacteria (or “methanotrophs”) can pack a one-two punch. Not only are they removing a harmful greenhouse gas from the environment, they are also generating a readily usable, sustainable fuel for automobiles, electricity and more.

Hydrogen fuels rockets, but what about power for daily life? We’re getting close

Hydrogen fuels rockets, but what about power for daily life? We’re getting close
