- A US Stortup Made Super Powerful Batteries From Nuclear Wastes
- This battery will continue to provide energy for 28000 years, production will start from 2023
- Claimed to be safe for humans, radioactive substances will be used
A US startup has built a superpower battery using nuclear waste. This battery will not need to be charged for 28000 years. According to the report, radioactive isotopes derived from the nuclear west are combined with ultra-slim layers of nanodiamonds to form a battery shape. This battery is so powerful that it can supply power to 400 generations of humans without recharging.
Claim to start production of battery by 2023
Nano Diamond Battery (NDB) claims that this radioactive battery is completely safe for humans. The startup has also claimed that we will start production of this battery within the next two years. Initially it will be made available to its commercial partners, including long-term missions of space agencies.
Will give power to mobile or electric car for 10 years
The company is also working on the customer version of this battery, which can power a smartphone or electric car without recharging for more than 10 years. The company said that this not only saves us from the hassle of having to recharge our devices frequently but also solves the environmental problems associated with the manufacture and disintegration of the battery.
This is the technology behind Diamond Battery
This battery derives power from radioactive waste graphite. Used in graphite-cooled nuclear reactors. So very thin crystalline diamonds are attached to the layers. Each unit will have a single crystalline diamond that absorbs energy from the isotopes. These diamonds have the highest energy-conductivity, which means that they transfer heat very quickly from radioactive graphite. This process happens so quickly that electricity is produced.
Prove concept design being described
These diamond layers not only collect charge, but also prevent the leakage of radiation. The startup has even claimed that it will spread such a small amount of radiation, that there will be no threat to human life. The firm has not yet produced batteries, but has a proof-of-concept design called the “Diamond Nuclear Voltaic”.
