Not my area of expertise, but battery technology is certainly the way of the future. Sounds interesting.

The Model 3 already has superior, improved batteries. You can buy Li-Ion cells on eBay right now double the energy density of Model 3 battery cells. That isn't the problem. The problem is making the full package, low cost, high surge capability, long shelf life, good stability & safety and high cycle life for the batteries.

You get these announcements for "revolutionary" battery developments regularly, about weekly. Putting the whole package together, as I mentioned above, invariably means incremental improvements, a few % per year:

By integrating our high capacity, high power and low-cost cathode with conventional anodes, battery manufacturers can create a Super lithium-ion battery? google

Cannabis-Based Batteries
Could Change the Way We Store Energy

Hemp tops graphene as an electrode material for supercapacitors, a technology that could surpass battery technology due to its faster recharge rate of seconds versus hours.

“Our device’s electrochemical performance is on par with or better than graphene-based devices,” Mitlin says. “The key advantage is that our electrodes are made from biowaste using a simple process, and therefore, are much cheaper than graphene.”

Hemp fibers are heated over the course of 24 hours, causing the material's carbon atoms to align and form nanosheets, each of which are only one carbon atom thick, and which can be used as conductors in batteries.

This one is already in wide use providing you can afford it. Google and Morgan Stanley can.

@ Combad, that is not a battery, that is a natural gas burning Fuel Cell. How on Earth they equate that with "clean energy" or "climate change" is beyond me.

@ DdC I knew you would come up with a "Hemp battery". Along with the Hemp fueled, all Hemp construction, electric vehicle and even better an all-Hemp airplane that runs on Hemp, built out of Hemp and all the food served is made from Hemp. Free joints for all passengers and the pilots sometimes deliver you to the wrong airport and fly in the opposite direction to where you are heading.

The best though is the Hemp based StarShip, 100% made of Hemp, the warp drive is powered by DiHempium Crystals, and if the crew crashlands on a hostile planet there is no worry, they can eat and smoke their own spaceship. I gotta git me one of those.

High Tech: 3Dom Releases Hemp 3D Printing Filament
http://3dprintingindustry.com/2016/02/02/3dom-releases-hemp-3d-printing-...
Fargo, North Dakota’s 3Dom USA has recently made a name for itself in producing 3D printing filament from unique materials, including coffee and even beer. With a focus on sustainability, the company seeks to use materials that rely on waste bioproducts over fossil fuel. The latest material sees 3Dom falling in line with the demands of many sustainability advocates over the years as their new Entwined filament is made from industrial hemp.

Blue Origin reuses (and relands) its rocket ship

There is no logical reason Hemp couldn't replace sheet metal in rockets. The Hempcrete can be used for the launch pad. All of the plastic parts made of Hemp. The uniforms and furniture cushions. Why not? Although I'm content on the central coast for now. Our dispensaries deliver and take credit cards. Edibles, drinks, concentrates and $150 ounces of Big Sur Holy Bud, Who needs outer space?

Getting harder to kid about Hemp with new things coming out daily it seems.

I would pay good money to see a hemp based star ship! LMAO

We Know How Far Trump Will Go - How Far Will Republicans Go?

Thom plus logo Colonel Vindman's testimony pretty much proves that Trump was trying to shake down Ukraine for information on Biden, and that the Republicans are doing everything they can to cover up this extortion attempt.
