"Batteries usually contain harsh chemicals that make them less than environmentally friendly, but a new research project out of the University of
Maryland seeks to change that, at least on the small-scale. A team led by professor Hongli Zhu has succeeded in creating a nanoscale rechargeable
battery from the most environmentally friendly material there is — wood."
Came across this article and thought it pretty pertinent considering how toxic the chemicals in our everyday batteries are to the environment.
What do you think ATS, will we ever see this technology used in the production of mainstream everyday use batteries?
