- Scientists have developed a new way to store energy that also offers a solution to a growing environmental problem.
Scientists in South Korea have developed a new way to store energy that also offers a solution to a growing environmental problem.
According to the study, this material outperforms commercially available carbon, graphene and carbon nanotubes. It may someday be used to coat the electrodes of supercapacitors: electrochemical components that can store extremely large amounts of electrical energy.
"Our study has shown that used cigarette filters can be transformed into a high performing carbon-based material using a simple one step process, which simultaneously offers a green solution for meeting the energy demands of society," says co-author Professor Jongheop Yi of Seoul National University....MORE
