Biochars from various biomass types as anodes for sodium-ion batteries
August 20-25, 2017
Until now, the applications targeted for biochars have mostly been focused in the field of energy, as combustion fuel, or of agronomy, as soil amendment. However, high-added value materials in the field of electrochemistry are now more and more mentioned as promising applications to investigate (Deng et al. 2016). At the moment, one major topic in electrochemistry is the development of alternative to lithium-ion battery in order to solve the issue of lithium supply. One of the most mature options is sodium-ion battery (Wang et al. 2016). In such battery, anode is generally made up of hard carbon, that has surface area below 10 m2.g-1 and subnanometric pores.
