She wants to create sustainable, self-healing batteries

More and more, we are increasingly dependent on batteries. In addition, batteries play an important role in reducing emissions and limiting climate change. But the batteries of today have a big problem. They wear out, much faster than we want. Wallenberg Scholar Kristina Edström is a professor of inorganic chemistry. She’s working on developing a completely new solution for saving the health of batteries. She wants to create a self-healing battery.
The inspiration comes from common medicines. The idea is that the batteries should have a component inside them - like a pill.
With access to such batteries, we could store energy with much less impact on our planet.
