A new material called Power Paper can store large amounts of energy and recharges in seconds.
Scientists at Linköping University’s Laboratory of Organic Electronics have invented what they believe is a major breakthrough in energy storage technology that could be used to store large amounts of energy from renewable sources and it’s made from something surprising: paper. Well, sort of.
The new material called Power Paper is a made from a cellulose pulp, just like regular paper, but it has a few upgrades that allow it to act like a supercapacitor. The cellulose fibers are broken down into tiny nano-sized fibers which are then added to a water solution along with an electrically charged polymer.
