Composite of lignin derivatives and conducting polymers for electro-capturing of toxic heavy metals

Among the 100% water on planet earth, less than 1% is liquid fresh water and about 0.0025% is available fresh water for drinking, food and industries. More than 90% of the fresh water is utilized for agriculture and industries. Pollution of water is thus an increasingly important problem. One of the most challenging depollution process …

Lignosulfonate composited with electronic polymers for large scale energy storage applications

A renewable resource from existing forest industry is the black liquor that mainly goes to combustion. The dominating biopolymer in black liquor is a derivative of lignin. At LiU we have shown how lignin and lignosulfonate (LS) can be used to store charge into biopolymer electrodes, and built supercapacitors/supercabatteries of such electrodes. In these electrodes, …
