Graphene supercapacitors created with ‘traditional paper making’ process, rivals lead-acid battery capacity

Materials engineers at Monash University in Australia have devised a method of producing graphene supercapacitors that have the same energy density as the lead-acid battery under your car’s hood. Not only are these supercapacitors about 10 times more energy-dense than commercial devices, but the method of producing the graphene inside the supercapacitors seems to be…

New thermocell could harvest ‘waste heat’ from power stations and even vehicle exhaust pipes

A small team of Monash University researchers working under the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) has developed an ionic liquid-based thermocell. Thermocell technology is based on harnessing the thermal energy from the difference in temperature between two surfaces and converting that energy into electricity. http://m.phys.org/news/2013-07-thermocell-harvest.html Related articles New Technology Could Turn Wasted Heat…
