Chitin, found in shrimp shells, has been used to produce a sustainable electrode for a flow battery

Lithium-ion batteries power much of the modern world, but when it comes to renewable energy, scientists see great potential in an emerging alternative known as redox flow batteries. Researchers have developed a new electrode component for these storage devices that is said to outperform current solutions, thanks to the inclusion of an ingredient found in shrimp shells.
