Over the last few years researchers have been developing supercapacitors to become the next-generation battery. Instead of using chemical reactions, super capacitors are more powerful batteries equipped with an internal substrate that collects ions that release powerful bursts during discharge. Now one research team from the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center at the University of Illinois has produced super capacitors made out of wood. The researchers have figured out how to convert almost any type of wood into a biochar super capacitor that can produce as much power as an active carbon super capacitor at a fraction of the production cost.
