Researchers from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), and the Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute created an efficient, energy converting paint. By utilizing the waste heat generated by a variety of sources, thermoelectric materials create sustainable electricity. The problem with current thermoelectric devices is their angular shape. When placed on the frequently curved objects that generate waste heat, a considerable amount of resources is wasted. Thermoelectric paint, on the other hand, particularly when brushed on, produced a consistently high output of power. The authors of the study believe that large-scale…
