Non-toxic, paper-based batteries can be safely thrown out
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently.

Ever more devices are being run on lithium batteries. One concern with the proliferation of these batteries is that they tend to contain toxic materials that are difficult to dispose of cheaply and in a way which does not harm the environment. Now, Barcelona-based Fuelium has come up with a green energy solution. They have developed paper-based batteries that can be thrown away, with no need to recycle and no harmful effects. Unlike the batteries of flashlights and computers, Fuelium’s batteries use a supply of energy from an electrochemical reaction to produce electricity. Paper is used as the base material and to transport the fluids by capillary action.
