Vanadium redox flow battery using activated carbon catalyst produced from low density polyethylene

Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt

Carbonized and activated low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is suggested as a carbon catalyst for vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB). This carbon catalyst has many surface oxygen functional groups and a large surface area, while such benefits are achieved through activation of carbonized LDPE. According to electrochemical analysis, this carbon catalyst doped graphite felt (GF) enhances the redox reactivity of vanadium ions. More specifically, peak current density and peak potential separation for redox reaction of vanadium ions are 96.0 and 22.1% more improved than those measured by bare GF, while charge transfer resistance for the redox reactions is also improved by use of the catalyst doped GF. When performance of VRFB using this catalyst doped GF is measured, energy efficiency is 39% more improved than that measured without the catalyst. Based on that, this is revealed that new LDPE-based carbon catalyst is effective for performance improvement of VRFB.
