Black Carbon batteries (BCB) are made-up of bio-waste and metallic wastes, these are easily available, hence are very cost-effective. The redesigned process doesn’t require storage of hydrogen gas hence it makes BCB the best choice in terms of safety. This is the first-ever rechargeable BCB, an energy storage solution that runs off of cheap, environmentally friendly (organic and metallic waste) materials. In contrast to lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries which are made up of rare minerals, BCB has an electrode made of carbon, which gets charged by splitting water molecules.
Zero emissions: Mining, for traditional batteries’ containing lithium and other rare metals, dumping chemicals into ecosystems and clearing the vegetation leads to environmental consequences. BCB operation: BCB concept involves a solid hydrogen storage electrode integrated into a single Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) cell that can operate reversibly as an electrolyser to split water and as a fuel cell to generate electricity, that is, a unitised regenerative fuel cell (URFC) with integrated storage.
