‘Sand’ Is Now a Key Ingredient in Lithium Ion Batteries

Using sand as the key material, researchers at the University of California, Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering have made a lithium ion battery that has three times the capacity of the current standard battery.

“This is the holy grail – a low cost, non-toxic, environmentally friendly way to produce high performance lithium ion battery anodes,” said Zachary Favors, a graduate student working with Cengiz and Mihri Ozkan, both engineering professors at UC Riverside.
