Biocarbon Li-ion Batteries
Updated: Jan 13, 2019
Biomass-derived anodic materials give Li-ion batteries longer operational lifetimes.
Our research focus in novel clean energy technologies is to developed advanced materials with applications in green & renewable energy generation and storage such as improving lithium batteries and supercapacitors. We have developed a biomass conversion method that forms biocarbon matter with nanocompartments that when used as anode electrodes in Li-ion batteries, they significantly extend the operational lifetime of the batteries.
The anode nanocomposites increase the charge capacity and re-charging cycles of Li-ion batteries. This allows for a new generation of Li-ionn batteries that are low-weight, renewable, reusable, and recyclable.
