Energy storage applications of biomass-derived carbon materials: batteries and supercapacitors

Author affiliations

Abstract

With the rapid development of energy storage technologies, especially for practical application, it is of paramount importance to consider the cost, environmental friendliness, and sustainability of the devices. Recently, biomass-derived carbon materials (BDCMs) have been widely researched for energy storage due to their superior properties such as renewability, earth-abundancy, low-cost, good electrical conductivity, and stability. In this study, we have mainly reviewed recent research on the potential applications of BDCMs, especially in batteries and supercapacitors. Furthermore, the fundamentals and advantages/disadvantages of typical BDCMs for energy storage have been discussed. Finally, some possible future research directions have been provided.
