With the world moving towards more sustainable energy, India has achieved another breakthrough. As per the latest reports, the Electrochemical Energy Storage Lab at the Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad has created a 5V Dual Carbon Battery.
IIT Hyderabad Saves Environment With New Invention
As per the reports, the model is developed by a team under the guidance of Dr Surendra Kumar Martha.
The new product will nearly elimate the need for expensive, toxic and heavy transitional metals. Furthermore, it promotes sustainable and budget friendly alternative for Dual Carbon Battery.
The 5V Dual Carbon battery will find its most optimum use in high voltage applications, huge battery run medical devices, braking systems in electric vehicles and some of the stationary grid.
5V Dual Carbon Battery Prevents Human Rights Violations
The new development in the field not only contributes with the environment but also with the himan rights violations across developing nations. With the uneven distribution of lithium and cobalt and the constant rise around the globe has led to unethical child labour.
This also affects the inflations within the costs of raw materials and the global market stability. However, with the new development by the IITH, there will be zero transition metal which eco friendly and has the potential to cut down the cost by 20-25 per cent. It is also expected to bring stability in the market.
The team strongly is of the opinion that this new invention will push the energy density limits. With a broader vision in mind, Dr Surendra Kumar Martha introduced the 5V Dual Carbon Battery within in the Indian market.
The research also included PhD students at IIT Hyderabad; Shuvajit Ghosh and Udita Bhattarcharjee under Dr Martha’s guidance. The team worked in collaboration with Oal Ridge National Laboratory, USA.
Mumbai Naval Research Board (DRDO) and Naval Materials Research Laboratory also extended their support towards the project.
