Will Apple Waste Replace Lithium in Batteries?

A team of German scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Institute of Electrical Engineering has developed a carbon-based material obtained from apple residue for the manufacture of sodium-ion batteries. This could be a sustainable alternative to lithium-ion technology for stationary energy storage. Extracted from apple waste, the material consists of sodium oxide layers and has excellent electrochemical properties. Cobalt-free, the material is efficient and non-polluting. Sodium-ion batteries represent a promising technology, since the raw materials are easily accessible and inexpensive.
