A rechargeable battery made from materials sourced from recycled glass bottles has been shown to store almost four times more energy than conventional ones.

Used glass bottles can be ground into a fine powder to create silicon based anodes.

They could improve the battery life of devices such as smartphones and even extend the driving range of electric cars.

Traditional rechargeable lithium-ion batteries contain two electrodes – one made from lithium called a cathode, and the other made from carbon – the cathode. However, the new batteries developed by researchers at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), contain a silicon-based cathode +5
