Indian researchers develop energy storage materials from sugar mill waste

August 9, 2017 |

In India, researchers at the Bhavnagar-based Central Salt and Marine Research Institute (CSMRI) have developed a method to produce functionalized carbon material from sugar production and distillery waste that can be used to make electrodes, sensors and supercapacitors. After the carbon is removed from the waste wash, it can then be further treated through a combination of adsorption and low pressure reverse osmosis so the water can be used for irrigation or returning it to the distillery for reuse.
