From the Russian air base "Khmeimim" in the Syrian Latakia, rocket attacks were carried out on militant targets in the province of Aleppo.
Neutron research reactor PIK, which is Gatchina near St. Petersburg, went to the next stage energy start — his power has begun to raise the level of 10 MW, and the output of the reactor operating power of 100 MW is planned EN 2022. The conclusion of the reactor on the energy mode of operation is stated in the message on the website of the Kurchatov Institute.
Mass production of biofuels for aviation is less cost-effective compared to the production of aviation kerosene from oil. Therefore, without the introduction of a carbon tax, it is not able to compete with traditional jet fuel, said Jay D. Kiesling, professor of chemical engineering and bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley, deputy director of the Biological Sciences Laboratory at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, chief Executive Officer of the Joint Institute for Bioenergy, in an interview with Global Energy.
Almost all of the oil produced in eastern Syria is being stolen by US troops in the region and their allies in the face of Kurdish paramilitary groups. This was stated by the Minister of Oil and Mineral Resources of Syria Bassam Tuome, speaking at a meeting of the People's Council (Parliament) of the Arab Republic.

In the next decade, the volume of production of thin-film solar modules in value terms will grow by about 10% per year. In gigawatts of power, the increase will be comparable to the rate shown by the rapidly developing solar power generation based on crystalline silicon.
Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have proposed the use of catalysts in aircraft engines. According to Aviation Week, it is assumed that in this way it will be possible to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides that affect global climate change.
Chinese scientists have developed a technology for producing methanol from carbon dioxide, which allows you to extract fuel from the atmosphere without any energy costs. This is a passive system that only needs a water source and an open space to work. The main secret is to use the daily temperature fluctuations on Earth, when the heat of the day replaces the cold of the night.
The Lebanese media "Al-Masdar News" denied the information that Russian fighters were involved in the destruction of oil tankers in Syria.
Russia can become a major global producer and exporter of hydrogen – one of the most environmentally friendly sources of energy. Nobel laureate Rae Kwon Chung is sure of this. What is his forecast based on, what is happening in the hydrogen fuel market today, and under what conditions is Russia's hydrogen breakthrough really possible?
