Widespread adoption of renewable energy in the power grid requires the right kind of battery — one that is safe, sustainable, powerful, long-lasting, and made from materials that are plentiful and ethically sourced. Researchers have formulated a new type of cell chemistry for dual-ion batteries (DIB) called graphite||zinc metal aqueous dual-ion battery, which uses a zinc anode and a natural graphite cathode in an aqueous, or water-in-bisalt, electrolyte.
