Scientists suggest the use of hemp for the production of cheap batteries

Forget about high-tech materials like graphene, which are produced in laboratories and used in advanced batteries. Everything new is well forgotten old, and scientists offer battery manufacturers to turn to natural resources: for example, to hemp, which can be the ticket to a successful energy future. And this is not a joke.
Scientists suggest the use of hemp for the production of cheap batteries
Canadian researchers have demonstrated that a very effective carbon electrodes can be done simply by heating bast fibres of hemp in a two-step process. The resulting substance can accumulate as much energy as graphene. But the obvious advantage of this process is its cheapness: the production uses including waste of hemp obtained, for example, after production of the service. And these batteries will be more successfully transfer temperature differences (from extreme cold to +93 Celsius). Therefore, cumulative batteries on the basis of hemp can be used not only in portable electronics, but also, say, solar. It is expected that the production of pilot batches of energy storage will begin in the near future. This will do one of the canadian companies.
