World’s stinkiest fruit could power electric chargers

Mar 02, 2020 17:11 IST

Deemed as the world's stinkiest fruit, the Durian seems to have found a useful purpose. According to a new study by professors from the University of Sydney, durians contain qualities needed for lightning-fast electric charging. The team has found a way to use the fruit to power a supercapacitor. A supercapacitor can store large amounts of energy and charge your phones and portable medical devices at lightning-fast speeds. Researchers shared that durian’s “fibruous and fleshy” organic waste was found to have good “mechanical stability." The study focused on converting food waste into value-added products to reduce environmental pollution.
