Invented energy storage batteries by distilling carbon

Washington: Scientists at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are working on battery technologies that could help fight climate change. These batteries will increase the use of renewable energy and help combat climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide.

This type of battery stores renewable energy generated by solar panels or wind turbines. In the absence of wind and sunlight, harnessing this energy requires an electrochemical reaction that distills carbon dioxide from industrial emissions and converts it into useful products.

ORNL researchers recently created and tested two different formulations of batteries that convert carbon dioxide into a solid form that can be used to make other things.

One of the new battery types can be used for up to 600 hours and can store up to 10 hours of power.

Researchers have also identified, studied and addressed the underlying problem of inactivity leading to chemical build-up in research. This problem was difficult for other battery formulations.
