Test Report: Application of Renewable PlasCarbon in Batteries

PlasCarb researchers from the teams at Abalonyx, Norway, and CNRS, France, published a report on their study from July 2016. Together with colleagues from Graphene Batteries, a norwegian SME, they tried to answer the question whether and how Renewable PlasCarbon (RPC) can be efficiently applied in market-available batteries and whether it can compete against carbon black being conventionally used for this purpose.

RPC is a graphitic nanocarbon powder, characteristically placed between graphene and carbon black, and is the resulting product of the PlasCarb technology. The technology incorporates a number of value chain components for the innovative up-cycling of food waste to high value materials such as the RPC.
