    UD researchers report hyper-efficient method for removing carbon dioxide from air

    Fuel cell breakthrough?

    The research team, led by UD Professor Yushan Yan, reported their method in Nature Energy on Thursday, February 3… Yan… has been working for some time to improve hydroxide exchange membrane (HEM) fuel cells, an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional acid-based fuel cells used today.

    But HEM fuel cells have a shortcoming that has kept them off the road — they are extremely sensitive to carbon dioxide in the air. Essentially, the carbon dioxide makes it hard for a HEM fuel cell to breathe… Yan’s research group has been searching for a workaround for this carbon dioxide conundrum for over 15 years.

    I think it was Isaac Asimov who said that the scientist's cry of discovery was not Eureka! rather it was "That's funny?" ... lol, no truer words.

    You were waaaay ahead of the curve, donk. I like how the two letters form a trident. That's next level.
