DALLAS, Jan. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE -- Alternet Systems, Inc. (ALYI) (“ALYI”) today announced that the company's hemp energy storage project lead was featured in an online publication through Forbes. In October last year, Alternet initiated a project to explore and develop hemp-based technologies for energy storage. The company engaged Clarkson University Professor David Mitlin to lead the initiative. Professor Mitlin is a leading expert in electrochemistry and a pioneer in the use of hemp as a clean, green, renewable energy in the form of a supercapacitor. Mitlin has successfully used hemp bast - the fiber left over from processing hemp - to construct carbon nanosheets that compete with, and in some respects, outperform the supercapacitor performance derived from more typical graphene nanosheets.
The Forbes article mentioned above states:
“The challenge to find lighter and longer-lasting energy storage devices (e.g., batteries) can be found in almost every sector. Hemp could prove to revolutionize battery life by aiding in the development of faster, smaller and cheaper supercapacitors. A supercapacitor is an energy storage device that can discharge powerful infusions of energy, needed only in small bursts. Such powerful discharges are used in braking systems of electric vehicles, the powering on of computers and new technologies such as rapid phone charging or cordless tools.
The current top-performing supercapacitors use graphene. However, in 2004, Dr. David Mitlin of Clarkson University and researchers at the National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT), discovered that hemp-based supercapacitors outperformed graphene supercapacitors in energy storage by nearly 200%.”

Earlier this week, ALYI released a management update highlighting the company’s hemp energy initiative in light of the 2018 Farm Act legalizing the farming of hemp in the United States, and providing the latest developments with $1.5 million in Revolt Electric Motorcycle orders. ALYI is focused on offering varied, environmentally sustainable, energy storage solutions for targeted markets, including consumer electric vehicles and military applications. The Company has an number of strategic initiatives underway. The primary focus of the update today is ALYI’s two leading initiatives, the development of hemp energy storage and the production and sales of electric motorcycles. A recent research report from Grand View Research anticipates the industrial hemp market to grow to $10.6 billion by 2025.
ALYI has engaged Nouveau, Inc. (NOUV) to source hemp fiber for its supercapictor developments. NOUV has recently announced a 100 acre hemp cultivation operation.
