How to capture waste heat energy with improved polymers

By one official estimate, American manufacturing, transportation, residential and commercial consumers use only about 40 percent of the energy they draw on, wasting 60 percent. Often, this wasted energy escapes as heat, or thermal energy, from inefficient technology that fails to harvest that potential power. Now a team at UMass Amherst led by chemist Dhandapani Venkataraman reports in Nature Communications on an advance they outline toward more efficient, cheaper, polymer-based harvest of heat energy.
