Supercapacitors from Scrap Tires

In order to meet today’s energy demands, engineers are getting creative—making batteries out of packing peanuts, using the gas from rotting trash to fuel vehicles, and now—turning scrap tires into supercapacito... Read More...

Researchers Develop Flexible Supercapacitor with Highest Reported Storage Capacity by Volume

A new flexible supercapacitor with a volumetric energy density of 6.3 microwatt hours per cubic millimeter is said to have the highest reported storage capacity by volume reported for carbon-based microscale supercapacitors. The device was created by a team of researchers from Nanyang Technological University, Tsinghua University and Case Western Reserve University.
