Black Carbon Battery

Black Carbon batteries (BCB) are made-up from bio-waste and metallic wastes which is available in abundant hence are the cost-effective and green batteries. The redesigned process doesn’t require storage of hydrogen in gases form 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 on cheap, environmentally friendly (organic and metallic waste) materials. In contrast to lithium ion (li-ion) batteries which are made-up of rare earth materials, BCB has an electrode made of carbon, which gets charged by splitting water molecules. Zero emissions: Mining traditional batteries’ lithium and other rare earth metals can have a host of environmental consequences, including dumping chemicals into ecosystems and clearing land of vegetation. 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 or as a fuel cell to generate electricity, that is, a unitised regenerative fuel cell (URFC) with an integrated storage.
