Greening energy solutions with biobased carbon
Graphitic carbon structures are important materials for technologies that will define our sustainable future (e.g. efficient energy storage and conversion). Unfortunately, they are mostly produced from petroleum-based non-renewable resources. When it comes to harvesting carbon for use in novel ordered nanoporous carbon materials for applications in green devices, it thus makes sense to look to bio-sourced building blocks as sustainable alternatives to fossil fuel-derived feedstocks. Biomass around us is produced within a very short time compared to fossil fuels. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the BioNanoCarb project will pursue this approach with a focus on paving the way to rational design of supramolecular assemblies integrating bio-sourced compounds.
