Report looks at the most and least expensive EVs to charge in the UK

Report looks at the most and least expensive EVs to charge in the UK

Just like combustion engine vehicles, not all-electric vehicles are created equal. Some electric vehicles have larger batteries, and some are capable of driving further than others on the same amount of electricity. With the variance in battery size and technology, not all-electric vehicles will cost the same to charge and operate.

MIT researchers develop a method to make biofuels from nonfood feedstocks

MIT researchers develop a method to make biofuels from nonfood feedstocks

One alternative biofuel that's been around for a long time is ethanol. It is often made from corn and is mixed into gasoline in most gas stations all around the country. The problem with using ethanol to make fuel is that corn is a feedstock. Researchers at MIT have now discovered a way of boosting the production of biofuels like ethanol using nonfood feedstocks.
