Seaweed-Based Battery Powers Confidence in Sustainable Energy Storage

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Takeaways:

  • Researchers from the University of Bristol are making a separator from cellulose nanomaterials made from brown seaweed.
  • The seaweed stops crystals from the sodium electrodes from penetrating the separator and improves the battery’s performance.
  • “This work really demonstrates that greener forms of energy storage are possible without being destructive to the environment in their production,” said Professor Steve Eichhorn from the Bristol Composites Institute.
