Hemp waste fibers form basis of supercapacitor more conductive than graphene – Marijuana News

At a recent presentation, a scientist described how he and his team were able to recycle leftover hemp bast fiber into powerful energy-storing supercapacitors.

Comprised of a lone hexagonal honeycomb lattice layer of tightly packed carbon atoms, graphene is one of the strongest, lightest, and most conductive compounds ever discovered.Bottom line, it’s an extraordinary composite.

However, a scientist from New York’s Clarkson University says he’s found a way to manufacture hemp waste into a material “better than graphene.”

Moreover, the scientist — known to his peers as Dr. David Mitlin — says creating this graphene-like hemp material costs but a minuscule fraction of what it takes to produce graphene.
