Hemp fibres ‘better than graphene’

Electric cars and power tools could harness this hemp technology, the US researchers say.

The waste fibres from hemp crops can be transformed into high-performance energy storage devices, scientists say. They “cooked” cannabis bark into carbon nanosheets and built supercapacitors “on a par with or better than graphene” – the industry gold standard.
