Electrical Energy from Industrial Lignin: A Preliminary Evaluation

Alan Wilkinson, Cornelius Steelink

Abstract


Kraft lignins can be pyrolyzed to durable, electrically conducting solids. These pyrolysates are able to function as cathodes in metal-lignin batteries. Voltage-time characteristics and fuel cell capabilities are discussed: results show sufficient promise to warrant further study.
