Energy storage has a significant impact on striking a balance between the supply and demand for energy. By using the impregnation process and physical blending, shape-stabilized PCMs were created.
Due to their potential to absorb or release significant amounts of heat during the phase change process, phase change materials (PCMs) have attracted a lot of attention in the energy sector.
Organic PCMs, such as fatty acids, alcohols, paraffin, etc., have the advantages of good chemical stability, high phase transition enthalpy, low supercooling, and no phase separation. PCMs can be categorized as inorganic, organic-inorganic mixture, and organic-only PCMs.
The Global shape-stabilized phase change material market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Shape-stabilized phase change material with highly thermal conductive matrix developed by one-step pyrolysis method. Shape-stabilized phase change material (ss-PCM) prepared by MMPC as the matrix might have its thermal conductivity improved by metal microspheres doping porous carbon (MMPC), which was made utilizing an in-situ pyrolysis reduction technique.
Through the pyrolysis of wheat bran adsorbed copper ions, a one-step pyrolysis technique was devised for the manufacture of MMPC, and the copper microspheres doped wheat bran biochar (CMS-WBB) was created.
In order to create the ss-PCM of SA/CMS-WBB, stearic acid (SA) was supported by the CMS-WBB. The findings of the investigation on the thermal characteristics of SA/CMS-WBB showed that adding copper microspheres could increase the SA loading quantity of wheat bran biochar while also enhancing SA/CMS-thermal WBB’s conductivity.
More notably, only one stage of pyrolysis was required to produce the CMS-WBB, greatly simplifying the preparation procedure and reducing energy usage. Furthermore, wheat bran’s primary ingredient is a readily available, inexpensive, and accessible form of agricultural waste.
Thus, a simplified way for enhancing the thermal characteristics of ss-PCMs was offered, and the SA/CMS-WBB synthesis had enormous potential in thermal management applications.
