Engineers at an American university have developed a way to convert plastic waste, such as PET bottles from soda and water, into a nanomaterial that can save energy. This development has the potential to reduce waste pollution and accelerate the transition to 100% clean energy.
This way of recycling plastic bottles will help to reduce the overall cost of batteries, making them cheaper to manufacture and reducing plastic waste worldwide. In addition, the supercapacitor obtained in the tests is capable of charging much faster, making batteries from waste plastics a good alternative for many applications.
