Energy from peat – level 2

Scientists in Estonia found a new way to make sodium-ion batteries. They used peat, which was cheaper then some metals in batteries, like lithium or cobalt.

Currently, people use lithium-ion batteries most often, but the problem with these batteries is that they are more expensive and harmful to the environment. The scientists heat the peat to a high temperature for two to three hours. Then they get a carbon powder which they use for the batteries.

The technology is new, and nobody really knows yet how good it will be. Still, the world is looking for technologies that are better for the environment, and with electric cars, car makers will need more and more batteries. This technology could help solve the problem with batteries in the future.

Difficult words: sodium-ion battery (a type of battery which uses a metal called sodium, and people cannot charge it as many times as the lithium-ion battery), peat (a dark brown substance from dead plants, vegetables and so on), lithium-ion battery (the most usual battery in electronic things, which people can charge many times).

Scientists in Estonia found a new way to make sodium-ion batteries. エストニアの科学者たちは、ナトリウムイオン電池を作る新しい方法を発見しました。 Cientistas da Estónia descobriram uma nova forma de fabricar baterias de iões de sódio. They used peat, which was cheaper then some metals in batteries, like lithium or cobalt. 彼らは泥炭を使用しましたが、これはリチウムやコバルトなどの電池の一部の金属よりも安価でした。

Currently, people use lithium-ion batteries most often, but the problem with these batteries is that they are more expensive and harmful to the environment. 現在、人々はリチウムイオン電池を最も頻繁に使用していますが、これらの電池の問題は、それらがより高価で環境に有害であるということです。 The scientists heat the peat to a high temperature for two to three hours. 科学者たちは泥炭を2〜3時間高温に加熱します。 Then they get a carbon powder which they use for the batteries. それから彼らはバッテリーに使用するカーボンパウダーを手に入れます。

The technology is new, and nobody really knows yet how good it will be. 技術は新しく、それがどれほど優れているかはまだ誰にもわかりません。 Still, the world is looking for technologies that are better for the environment, and with electric cars, car makers will need more and more batteries. それでも、世界は環境により良い技術を求めており、電気自動車では、自動車メーカーはますます多くのバッテリーを必要とするでしょう。 This technology could help solve the problem with batteries in the future. この技術は、将来的にバッテリーの問題を解決するのに役立つ可能性があります。
