Separator made from seaweed gives next-gen battery a performance boost

Scientists have used brown seaweed as a starting point for an advanced battery material

Batteries that make use of sodium as an electrode material are showing exciting promise by some key measures when it comes to next-generation energy storage solutions, and new research has now edged them closer to mainstream use. Scientists in the UK have developed a novel separator material from seaweed that shores up the durability of this battery design, and offers a capacity boost at the same time.
