Fossilised Algae May Soon Power Portable Electronics And Electric Vehicles

Shared by:

 
Researchers at the University of California have developed a way to create silicon-based anodes for ultra-high capacity lithium-ion batteries that in future may power not only portable electronics but also electric vehicles. Inexpensive and energy-efficient lithium-ion

This is good news. Fossil fuels is already a limited and scarce resources and we all know that it is depleting soon. Human beings should discover several new ways of obtaining energy sources so as to survive the future. Even if we reuse, reduce and recycle, the 3Rs, there is still a chance that we would not be able to survive in the next hundreds of years if we do not find an ulimited source of fuel. Hopefully theses fossilised algae may be able to power portable electronics and electric vehicl...

That is very interesting to know that diatomaceous earth can be used as a source of energy. I know of it for its use in polishers and facial/body scrubs. This is good to know. Despite its obvious abundance hopefully we won't deplete this source like we have been doing with other fossil fuels. Use in moderation is needed. We do really need a super battery Theekshana Abayawickrama and ...

Totally agree with you, Theekshana Abayawickrama . Everyone's acting like an unused power outlet is an island with gold treasure :)) The increase in demand of powerbanks prove your point. With the scientists' diligence in finding more ways to improve energy efficiency, they stumbled upon a new alternative that can potentially improve power source problems for gadgets. It is amusing and amazing that fossili...

Wow. I'm looking forward to the day that we will not have to plug our smartphones to a wall outlet to charge every evening after a half a days use. No matter how far we have developed in terms of science and technology, we are still stuck at one point. Power to electronic devices. The current technologies that we have have kind of hit its limit. You can develop a battery to last an hour longer but it is impossible to make it last 2 weeks. That is why we need new revolutionary technologies li...
