D Nuclear Diamond Batteries
•••••A company called NDB for Nuclear Diamond Batteries has announced the development of a battery that uses C14 graphite from nuclear waste. Graphite is widely used as a moderator of nuclear reactors. Over the years the C12 of the graphite is converted to radioactive C14 and this contributes to a significant amount of the nuclear waste. Radioactive C14 decays to non-radioactive N14 + an anti-neutrino + a Beta decay electron. Using their process this graphite is highly purified and converted to a diamond which produces electricity. To create a battery cell, several layers of this nano-diamond material are stacked up and stored with a tiny integrated circuit board and a small super-capacitor to collect, store and instantly distribute the charge. The diamond is coated with a substance that prevents the leakage of radioactive material and is very safe.

NDB says the batteries will be cost-competitive with and sometimes significantly less expensive than – current lithium batteries. That equation is helped along by the fact that some of the suppliers of the original nuclear waste will pay NDB to take it off their hands.
•••••This process allows for the production of batteries that do not need re-charging for decades or longer. The batteries can be made into any of the current battery sizes to power iPhones, hearing aids, drones, computers, cameras, health monitors, pacemakers, space craft, and even cars. Think of that, an electric car that does not need re-charging and a source of electricity that has no environmental impact, like windmills and solar devices. In addition, it is a source of electricity that does not need wind or the sun.
•••••In the words of Dr. John Shawe-Taylor, UNESCO Chair and University College London Professor: “NDB has the potential to solve the major global issue of carbon emissions in one stroke without the expensive infrastructure projects, energy transportation costs, or negative environmental impacts associated with alternate solutions such as carbon capture at fossil fuel power stations, hydroelectric plants, turbines, or nuclear power stations. Their technology’s ability to deliver energy over very long periods of time without the need for recharging, refueling, or servicing puts them in an ideal position to tackle the world’s energy requirements through a distributed solution with close to zero environmental impact and energy transportation costs.”
•••••You could put one of these batteries in a home, and boom, you've eliminated the whole infrastructure – electric power lines, power plants and long-distance transmission lines.
•••••Should the company chew right through the world's full supply of carbon-14 nuclear waste – a prospect that would take some extremely serious volume – NDB says it can create its own carbon-14 raw material simply and cost-effectively.
•••••The company has completed a proof of concept and is ready to begin building its commercial prototype once its labs reopen after COVID shutdown. A low-powered commercial version is expected to hit the market in less than two years, and the high-powered version is projected for five years' time. NDB says it's well ahead of its competition with patents pending on its technology and manufacturing processes.

•••••The Comings Foundation will support this technology.
