  • Batteries made with sulfur could be cheaper, greener and hold more energy.

    Alternative batteries will always be around the corner.

    One such technology could be lithium-sulfur batteries: they store considerably more energy than their lithium-ion cousins — in theory as much as six times the energy for a given weight. What's more, they can be made from cheap materials that are readily available around the world.

    Until now, lithium-sulfur batteries have been impractical. Their chemistry allows them to store so much energy that the battery physically breaks apart under the stress.

    However, my colleagues and I have engineered a new design for these batteries which allows them to be charged and discharged hundreds of times without breaking down. We hope to have a commercial product ready in the next two to four years.

    At least someone is working on real and practical science instead of wasting time on climate voodoo.

      Seems I recall from somewhere that sulphur is a major no-no in the Climatology Bible, a major pollutant contributor to acid rain and and other unforgivable sins. Are we going to create a new monster, especially when recycling, or actually solve a problem for a change?

            Only in your mind. The rest of us are discussing something else entirely.

              Inevitably, that will be the consumers and users.
