Electrochemistry News Items & Facts for May 2022:
The cost to install underground power lines is typically 5-10x higher than above-ground power lines, partly due to the special insulation needed to dissipate heat generated by the flow of current along the wires.
Ultrasonication is being studied as a way to more efficiently delaminate electrodes for battery recycling and increase throughput 100x compared to hydro-metallurgical or pyro-metallurgical battery recycling methods, and to boost the purity of the recycled end products.
The Energy Observer is a 100-ft long catamaran sailing a 10-person crew using entirely renewable energy, including solar-powered electrolysis for hydrogen fuel generation. The catamaran has been at sea since 2017!
