Researchers at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are studying whether lignin – a byproduct of the pulp, paper, and biofuels industries – could be useful as a battery anode, potentially improving upon graphitic materials found in most lithium-ion batteries. Initial testing of lignin-derived battery has shown some promising results.
