$HEMP Hemp Supercapacitors are as Good as Graphene at a Fraction of the Cost

Graphene is a super material that is 100 times stronger than steel, conducts electricity better than copper, and is more flexible than rubber. It’s used in electronics but it’s prohibitively expensive to produce – so David Mitlin of Clarkson University , New York has discovered a way to replicate at least some of its properties with cheap hemp fiber leftover from textiles and building materials. His team has managed to upcycle these fibers into supercapacitors – energy storage devices that are quickly transforming the way electronics are powered. His findings were recently published in the ACS Nano Journal and presented at the American Chemical Society meeting
