    Cleantech Pitchfest

    Cleantech Pitchfest

    Hear from six Berkeley Lab scientists with big new ideas designed to help transform our carbon-drenched, overheating world. These short presentations cover desalination, energy efficient window coating, capturing carbon, energy from ocean waves, alternate fuel for your car, and an app that compares fuel economy or EV range.

    Recycling CO2

    Recycling CO2

    Kendra Kuhl co-founded Opus 12 to find out if an electrochemical process, operating inside a desk-sized reactor, can do on an industrial scale what is often hailed as the Holy Grail of carbon-recycling research—convert CO2 captured from smokestacks into ethanol and other valuable products.

    DIY Efficient Windows

    DIY Efficient Windows

    Replacing millions of porous windows with energy-efficient versions in older buildings and homes can be prohibitively expensive. Berkeley Lab’s Raymond Weitekamp, a Caltech PhD, has a new approach: an inexpensive, paint-on, energy-efficient coating that can be applied simply and evenly without the help of a professional—while the windows are still in place.
