Wooden Energy

A report published in the Nano Letters journal states that scientists have attempted to create a battery out of wood. The battery made from the sliver of wood holds promise of being an environment–friendly energy source.

The battery which is tiny, long–lasting and efficient is made from wood fibres. These wood fibres are flexible to retain mineral–rich water similar to the electrolyte in batteries. The wood was used as a base of an experimental sodium–ion battery as sodium is environment–friendly when compared to lithium.

The new battery was successful during lab experiments, lasting longest amongst sodium–ion batteries through 400 charge–discharge cycles. Scientists see the battery as a technology capable of benefitting the energy applications such as wind farms or solar energy installations.

The most wonderful and precious element of universe is the human life which can only be guided by the right knowledge and right attitude. So, here is an ocean of knowledge, both in English and Hindi encompassing every detail and each facet of human life which ‘one must know’ in order to grow and attain the summits of success. A team of around 200 dedicated members is working ceaselessly to turn such a colossal dream into reality. We are confident that this portal will help bring change in people across the world.
