Harvard new nontoxic Battery

Harvard new nontoxic Battery Team

By modifying the structures of molecules used in the positive and negative electrolyte solutions, and making them water soluble, the Harvard team was able to engineer a battery that loses only one percent of its capacity per 1000 cycles.

Harvard scientists have developed a new flow battery which stores energy in liquid, works 10 years without energy loss and is much safer than lithium-ion batteries.

After a few years of heavy use, most lithium-ion batteries suddenly loose a lot of storage capacity. You surely recognize this from your smartphone, but that’s also a problem for energy storage which should last a very long time to store solar energy. Scientists at Harvard University have found a possible solution.

The new technology promises a battery definitely lasting ten years without losing much capacity. The solution is applied to a so-called flow-battery. The flow battery stores energy in organic molecules dissolved in neutral pH water. This new chemistry allows for a non-toxic, non-corrosive battery with an exceptionally long lifetime and offers the potential to significantly decrease the costs of production.

Solar energy – 7 reasons

Solar energy - 7 reasons

On average, manufacturers give 25 to 30 years warranty on solar panels. In practice, the panels will last much longer.

Now, solar energy is really going to break through. This is what the US Rocky Mountains Institute believes. 

The institute listed ten reasons for it. BetterWorldSolutions is pointing out 7 of them.

From CO2 to Valuable Carbon Nanofibers

From CO2 to strong and valuable nanofibers, this is a high potential technology

The strong nanofibers can be used for strong carbon composites which are used in planes, bikes, wind turbine blades and space equipments.

In 2015, a research team from the George Washington University presented a technology that converts CO2 (directly from the air) into highly valued carbon nanofibers for industrial and consumer products. 

The strong nanofibers can be used for strong carbon composites which are used in planes, bikes, wind turbine blades and space equipments. Read More

Hybrid Energy claims to offer a battery which is safer, more circular, more modular and cheaper than the PowerWall

How incredible would it be to use your own generated solar or wind power whenever you want. Or sell if you don’t use the energy. With only the touch of a button. 

Due to the special Lead Crystal® batteries, you are now able to store solar, wind or grid energy fast and safely. You can use the storage energy day or night, to run all your electric devices like TV, coffee machine, dish washer, laptop and lighting in your house. You will become less grid dependent, saving significantly on energy costs, and contribute to a greener planet. Read More
