Seaweed Gives Scientists an Idea for Improved Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries could store ten times as much energy per kg of batteries if they were constructed with silicon anodes (compared to traditional li-ion batteries). That is a gravimetric energy density of 1,000 watt-hours per kg. This could almost eliminate the range issue that electric vehicles have, but there is one problem:
