Hybrid material improves silicon in Li-ion batteries

Researchers at the University of Eastern Finland have developed a new hybrid material of mesoporous silicon microparticles and carbon nanotubes that can improve the performance of silicon in Li-ion batteries. Advances in battery technology are essential for sustainable development and for achieving climate neutrality.

AI predicts treatment effectiveness

How can a doctor predict the treatment outcome of an individual patient? Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is studied by randomised trials where patients are randomly divided into two groups - one of the groups is given treatment, and the other a placebo.

Wetlands key for greenhouse gas measurements in Arctic

  The Arctic is rapidly warming, with stronger effects than observed elsewhere in the world. The Arctic regions are particularly important with respect to climate change, as permafrost soils store huge amounts of the Earth’s soil carbon (C).

Silicon can quadruple anode capacity in Li-ion batteries

According to new research from the University of Eastern Finland, silicon – the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust – shows great promise in Li-ion batteries. By replacing graphite anodes with silicon, it is possible to quadruple anode capacity. In a climate-neutral society, renewable and emission-free sources of energy, such as wind and solar power, will become increasingly widespread.

Liquid by-products from wood industry to be used in WPCs

A novel method for adding liquid by-products from the wood industry into wood-plastic composites (WPCs) prior to manufacturing was developed in a study from the University of Eastern Finland. The study also discovered that proton-transfer-reaction mass-spectrometry (PTR-MS) is a suitable method for measuring the amounts of volatile organic compounds, VOCs, released from WPCs.

Energy storage opportunities for Li-ion batteries

Lithium-ion batteries are a rapidly growing energy storage method due to their high energy density, especially in mobile applications such as personal electronics and electric cars. However, the materials currently used in Li-ion batteries are expensive, many of them, like lithium cobalt oxide (belonging to the EU Critical Raw Materials, CRMs), are difficult to handle and dispose of. Batteries using these materials also have relatively short life...
