Purdue University researcher led a team that is a finalist for the 2016 R&D 100 award

Purdue University researcher led a team that is a finalist for the 2016 R&D 100 award, which has been called the "Oscars of invention."

The team has developed a process to convert trashed packing peanuts into carbon for battery electrodes and also for a technology to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to reduce climate change. The carbon nanoparticles and “microsheets” are produced at low cost from polystyrene and starch-based packing peanuts, respectively, said Vilas G. Pol, an associate professor in the School of Chemical Engineering and the School of Materials Engineering.

Perovskites Key to New Type of Hydrogen Fuel Cell

Crystals known as perovskites promise to revolutionize solar cells. Now researchers have found that they could improve fuel cells as well.

Fuel cells convert the chemical energy stored in fuels such as hydrogen into electricity. They do so by reacting the fuel with oxygen or another oxidizing agent that can strip electrons from the fuel. An electrolyte—commonly a polymer or ceramic—interposed between the fuel and oxidizer helps shuttle ions within the fuel cell.
