Soon, fossilised algae to power electric cars

Scientists are developing inexpensive, energy-efficient lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles by using silicon-based anodes made from the fossilised remains of single-celled algae called diatoms.
The research at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) in the US could lead to the development of ultra-high capacity lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and portable electronics.
