A recent study was conducted on improving the performance of Photo –Bioelectrochemical Fuel cell using grapheme oxide, Cobalt, & polypyrrole composite modified photo – bicathode in the presence of antibiotics. The electrode is prepared by electropolymeriztion technique. The composite algal bacteria photo – bicathode performance is enhanced by GO/Co/PPy.
Robert Frederick Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Cornell University, conducted a research study on improving Vanadium redox flow battery performance. It was found that when on direct addition of sulphur and nitrogen functional groups on graphite felt electrode can improve the performance of vanadium batteries.
Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, has discovered a bi – porous graphite felt electrode with enhanced surface area & catalytic activity for vanadium redox batteries. The bi – porous graphite felt electrode exhibits high electrolyte performance & electrochemical performances.
High mesoporous carbon derived from Sal wood and saw dust can be used as an electrode in vanadium redox batteries. The high mesoporous carbon has high surface area, surface oxygen, exhibits high catalytic activity, & has less contact resistance.
Carbon Felt & Graphite Felt Market Drivers & Restraints
