Simultaneous transformation of ambient heat and undesired vibrations into electricity via nanotriboelectrification during non-wetting liquid intrusion-extrusion into-from nanopores

Project description

Advanced method for efficiently converting waste heat and vibrations into electricity

Scavenging waste heat and vibrations from the environment could provide a new generation of power sources. However, the low efficiency of current conversion methods acts as a barrier to implementing such solutions. The EU-funded Electro-Intrusion project will work on a highly efficient method for simultaneously transforming mechanical and thermal energies into electricity via zero-emission nanotriboelectrification during the intrusion/extrusion of a non-wetting liquid into/from nanoporous solids. The project will bring together a multidisciplinary consortium that specialises in physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering to address project objectives. Project activities will include molecular dynamics simulations, high-pressure calorimetry and tribocharging, material synthesis and characterisation, and prototype development.
