Finding new ways to make batteries is always interesting, and especially finding natural materials to replace the heavy metals currently used in lithium-ion batteries can be very exciting. Carbon-based electrodes are a hot topic now but using a biomass source like beer to produce materials for batteries isn't so common. Now, when you drink a beer, you can think you are helping the cause towards more sustainable batteries! Check out this cool project the University of Colorado is working on and let us know what you think!
