Texas-based Alternet has engaged Professor David Mitlin of Clarkson University as part of a new initiative to explore hemp-based technologies for energy storage.
Professor Mitlin is a leading expert in electrochemistry and a pioneer in the use of hemp as a clean, renewable energy in the form of a supercapacitor. Mitlin has successfully used hemp bast – the fibre left over from processing hemp – to construct carbon nanosheets that compete with, and in some respects, outperform the supercapacitor performance derived from graphene nanosheets.
Alternet provides a range of environmentally sustainable, energy storage solutions for targeted markets, including consumer electric vehicles and military applications. The first product category is lithium battery-powered motorcycles, to be followed by motorbikes. These products are released through the company’s newly launched ReVolt Electric Motorbikes subsidiary.
