Carbon-Capture Batteries Developed to Store Renewable Energy, Help Climate

The Na-CO2 battery developed at ORNL, consisting of two electrodes in a saltwater solution, pulls atmospheric carbon dioxide into its electrochemical reaction, and releases only valuable biproducts.

­Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory are developing battery technologies to fight climate change in two ways, by expanding the use of renewable energy and capturing airborne carbon dioxide.  This type of battery stores the renewable energy generated by solar panels or

­New Battery Design Helps Developing Countries Go Green

The new zinc-lignin battery is stable, as it can be used over 8000 cycles while maintaining about 80% of its performance.

  Stopping the rise of global temperatures is a problem for the whole world. Often times it is developing countries that need that help the most because of a lack of funding, while developed countries can afford the changeover to more sustainable green energy. It should be easier for developing countrie
