Ryden cotton-based anodes battery - game changer?

Power Japan Plus has found a way to use cathodes and anodes constructed of an organic carbon derived from cotton using more common and less expensive materials.  As I recall from another article they predict 63% more energy in 40% of the space and able to charge a car-size battery in 12 minutes.  The latter because there is zero heat generated during energy transfer.  They mention lithium-ion, but then say completely recyclable.  Many articles on this, still, sounds too good to be true...    Al

Power Japan Plus's Ryden battery has five advantages over lithium-ion batteries:

1. charges 20 times faster (in minutes) than li-ion batteries.

2. has over 3,000 charge and discharge cycles - extremely reliable over many years of use.

3. is easy to manufacture; it doesn't use any rare metals.

4. is super safe; it runs at a steady temperature which reduces fire and explosion hazards.

5. is sustainable — 100 percent recyclable

Hmmm. Sounds great for my e-m1.  Hope I live long enough to see one.   heh
