Russian scientists have proposed using hogweed in batteries

Scientists from NUST “MISiS” suggest using hogweed in batteries. Electrodes were made from the fibrous stems of the plant, Izvestia is written . It was experimentally proven that the treated weed can replace traditional sources without compromising the quality of the batteries.

The stems consist of a hard bark and a soft inner core, similar to a sponge, forming a diverse porous structure. This “design” is effective for using carbon material as the basis for the drive, scientists are sure.

They developed the technology necessary to use hogweed as a material for batteries. The problem is that growing a hogweed to release batteries is unreasonable. And wild stocks may run out sooner or later.
