Biodegradable electronics? Is that even possible? Demand for batteries, requiring massive quantities of toxic metals like Nickle and Lithium, is rising along with concerns about pollution in China and the rest of Asia. Seems like our new technological world will come at the environment's expense. When you think of electronics, you might associate them with heavy metals, plastic and chemicals; not exactly safe materials. New research into using organic materials is getting closer to paying off. How are these new green electronics possible?
Our world is in a constant state of technological change and advancement. When some of the first mobile phones came out in the 80's they were big and bulky, weighing as much as 2 lbs. Over the years, the bulk has lessened significantly while capability and functionality have increased. Mere years ago, the average person wasn't thinking about how their phone could be used to surf the internet. Now, everywhere you go, there’s at least one person using their mobile device to access the internet. Businesses have picked up on this trend and have thus, started to develop their websites around making them as mobile friendly as possible.
