Paper batteries could power smart packaging
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. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Products have always been designed to fit battery design. Furthermore, when batteries run out, their disposal can pollute the environment. We’ve previously seen how paper batteries are being developed as a solution to these limitations. Now, Sweden-based BillerudKorsnäs has a plan to use its own paper battery design to create smart packaging. BillerudKorsnäs has developed the technology in collaboration with Uppsala University. The process uses algae to produce natural cellulose fibers. These are then manufactured into a conductive biopolymer that's also thin and flexible. BillerudKorsnäs has also been using the same materials in another project, to produce sustainable packaging. The…
