Green Batteries

by Becky Parker

From year 9, Saiesha worked on the Ionic Liquids Project with Professor Robert Palgrave from UCL.

As a result of this, she has been working towards developing green batteries that substitute organic solvents using ionic liquids in order to prevent the decomposition of these solvents into greenhouse gases. This project highlights the concerning fact that our dependency on fossil fuels extends to more than what meets the eye, thus even the smallest change can help further our advancement in the field of climate action.
