[ ♫ – Intro Music Plays -] In order to find graphite electrodes, you need to buy and make sure that the batteries are carbon zinc Alkaline batteries will not work I also recommend wearing gloves, because the process is dirty I begin by taking the packaging apart and looking for a way to disassemble […]

These Squishy Batteries Are Made Out of Water, Here’s How They Work

We humans are soft and squishy, and don’t like electricity. Robots are hard and pointy, and they love it. So how do we make a robot that’s soft and squishy like living things, but still gets power? Hydrogels of course. Hard, metal robots are so 20th century. “Soft-robotics” is hip. Just like me. Soft-robotics involves […]

Could Ultracapacitors Realize Their Full Potential…With Laxatives?

Supercapacitors present an amazing opportunity to move away from batteries and into a world where almost instant charging is the norm. But their drawbacks mean we can’t use them widely…yet. Experiments with a new class of materials that are related to soap and laxatives (yes, laxatives) could bring us one step closer to a world […]

Production of Extrusion and roll-to-roll electrodes

Manufacturers of electric batteries and vehicles are interested in the extrusion of electrodes, an innovative and very effective process. In fact, this process increases productivity, reduces solvent use and decreases investments. A key global player in polymer transformation, Arkema masters extrusion perfectly, a key step in this process. The dry ingredients are introduced in a […]

How Close Are We to Zero-Emissions Electricity?

We’ve all heard the statements and stats about the ominous timeline our planet is on. To avoid the worst effects of climate change––from natural disasters to mass extinction––we know that we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. And fast. And when we stop literally lighting things on fire to power our world, we can […]
