Organic mega flow battery promises breakthrough for renewable energy

Harvard technology could economically store energy for use when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine Flow batteries store energy in chemical fluids contained in external tanks—as with fuel cells—instead of within the battery container itself. The two main components—the electrochemical conversion hardware through which the fluids are flowed (which sets the peak […]


Mother Nature designed chitin to be an exoskeleton for insects that can be either flexible or rigid…and that has inspired Harvard researchers to invent a similar substance that may become a biodegradable replacement for plastic! Courtesy: Jim Parks Tweet
