Making Batteries from Waste Glass Bottle
Researchers at the University of California have used waste glass bottles and a low-cost chemical process to create Nano-silicon anodes for high-performance lithium-ion batteries.
The batteries will extend the range of electric vehicles and provide more power with fewer charges to personal electronics like cell phones and laptops.
In today’s world where billions of glass bottles end up in landfills every year, recycling programs and prompting the researchers to advance their effort on such project could provide high purity silicon nanoparticles for lithium-ion batteries.
This research is the latest in a series of projects to create lithium-ion battery anodes from environmentally friendly materials.
