NTU Singapore scientists convert waste paper into component for lithium-ion batteries

NTU Singapore scientists convert waste paper into component for lithium-ion batteries

December 1, 2022 |

In Singapore, scientists from NTU Singapore have developed a technique to convert waste paper, from single-use packaging and bags, and cardboard boxes, into a crucial component of lithium-ion batteries. Through a process called carbonisation which converts paper into pure carbon, the NTU researchers turned the paper’s fibres into electrodes, which can be made into rechargeable […]

NTU Singapore researchers develop pollen-based ‘paper’

April 6, 2022 |

In Singapore, scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a pollen-based ‘paper’ that, after being printed on, can be ‘erased’ and reused multiple times without any damage to the paper. In a research paper published online in Advanced Materials on 5 April, the NTU Singapore scientists demonstrated how high-resolution color images could […]

Singaporean researchers launch report on alternative shipping fuels

Singaporean researchers launch report on alternative shipping fuels

April 21, 2020 |

In Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and Singapore Maritime Institute (SMI) have launched a report that outlines how companies can use alternative fuels to power their ships. This will help them meet the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) long-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets of at least 50 per cent, compared to the […]
