" Renewable Biomass For Supercapacitor Applications" Presentation
|Renewable biomass for supercapacitor applications is a promising solution for sustainable energy storage.|
Biomass refers to organic matter derived from plants or animals, which can be converted into energy-rich materials.
Supercapacitors are energy storage devices that offer high power density and fast charging capabilities.
|Advantages of Renewable Biomass|
|Renewable biomass is abundant and can be sustainably harvested, reducing dependency on fossil fuels.|
Biomass can be easily processed into carbon nanomaterials, such as activated carbon or carbon nanotubes, which are suitable for supercapacitor electrodes.
Utilizing renewable biomass for supercapacitors can contribute to carbon capture and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
|Biomass Conversion Techniques|
|Pyrolysis is a commonly used technique to convert biomass into biochar, which has a high carbon content and can be used as a precursor for supercapacitor electrodes.|
Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) involves the conversion of biomass under high temperature and pressure, producing hydrochar with desirable electrochemical properties.
Direct carbonization, through controlled heating, can also be employed to convert biomass into carbon materials suitable for supercapacitor applications.
|Electrochemical Performance of Biomass-derived Carbon|
|Biomass-derived carbon materials exhibit high specific surface area and porosity, allowing for efficient ion transport and storage.|
