Researchers discover way to make lithium-ion battery components out of recycled glass bottles

(Natural News) Scientists have found a way to develop nanosilicon anodes, essential components of lithium-ion batteries, using recycled glass bottles. According to researchers at the University of California, Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering, silicon anodes can store significantly more energy compared with traditional graphite anodes. However, the research team noted that the expansion and shrinkage that take place…
