Cheap Supercapacitators From Wood

Researchers from the Illinois Sustainable Technology Centre used wood waste to produce super capacitators. These supercapacitators generate the same effect as advanced activated-carbon units.

Made by the team from biochar and waste products, they can be used for electronics and solar- and wind-power energy storage and distribution. Trees can be effectively used for sustainable energy storage, or for converting it to biofuels for use in generators and even vehicles.

Ultracapacitor UPS (U-UPS) for voltage dips and micro-interruptions

Power interruptions are the most frequent power supply problems with wide-ranging consequences for industry. The causes of these interruptions include short-circuits in the distribution grid, lightning strikes, the connection and disconnection of power plants as well as volatile energy producers such as wind and solar. Because technologies and production processes are becoming increasingly complex, the…
