Through their work with organic waste, especially kitchen waste, the researchers are fostering a new 'Farm-Energy Synergy' to produce usable activated carbon, a key ingredient in making supercapacitors. Supercapacitors made from activated carbon produced from paddy waste offer numerous benefits to consumers in the electronics, energy, and agricultural industries and can contribute to self-sufficiency in the supercapacitors field.

Boosting self-reliance in supercapacitors and energy storage technology will also enhance IP generation and employment opportunities within the country. Currently, India generates around 760 lakh metric tons of paddy waste per year, and farmers often resort to burning straw as a low-cost and efficient alternative to tailing it into the soil, resulting in significant pollution and ecological issues. Burning also reduces the potential use of biomass, resulting in an estimated loss of approximately Rs 92,600 crore for India associated with this method of farm waste management.

Making Environmental Friendly Supercapacitors

Converting paddy to supercapacitors

The conversion of bio-waste into activated carbon has been successfully demonstrated by IIT Madras researchers, who have used vegetable waste to create supercapacitor electrode materials. They now plan to adapt this technology to convert paddy waste into activated carbon, with the goal of exploring scales of production. The project is being led by Dr Tiju Thomas, Associate Professor at the Department of Metallurgical and Materials, IIT Madras. The institute is seeking CSR Partners to support the project's scaling up and benefits to the country.

Dr Thomas emphasised that the proposed process is a well-defined solution, allowing for the conversion of paddy waste into commercial standard carbon material. The activated carbon can then be used to fabricate supercapacitors that comply with market standards, which can be implemented as a suitable supercapacitor-based hybrid energy storage device. The benefits of activated carbon extend beyond the energy sector, with applications in water treatment, pharmaceuticals, and biochar production. The devices produced by IIT Madras are useful not only for the energy sector but also for the mobility sector, with potential use in electric vehicles.

Google's June 2024 Pixel Feature Drop includes a new Reverse Phone Number Lookup feature, allowing Pixel users to identify unknown callers directly from their call logs without needing third-party apps like Truecaller. This feature, compatible with Pixel 6 and later models with a Tensor chip, enhances convenience by eliminating the need to copy and paste numbers into search fields or separate apps. While the feature is currently exclusive to Pixel devices, Google has not disclosed any regional limitations or whether it will extend to other Android devices. For non-Pixel users, Truecaller remains a viable option.
