New Use Found for Number One Crop in Missouri

April 14, 2021

Soybeans are the number one crop in Missouri. Now research is finding a use for crop residue; the stems, leaves and shells of soybeans, items that up to now have had no commercial value. Scientists at a research center in Kansas have found a way to use the residue to produce activated carbon material that can be used to make a new kind of battery that is more eco-friendly. The goal is to produce an efficient dual carbon battery that can be charged in just 10-15 minutes. The demand for all types of batteries is increasing 10% annually and has become a $100 billion industry globally.
