Japan Has Developed Batteries That Do Not Contain Harmful Substances That Can Be Returned To Nature

- Mar 26, 2018-

NTT, the largest provider of telecommunications services, has developed a battery that does not contain harmful substances and rare metals that do not adversely affect the natural environment.According to the asahi shimbun, the battery's outer layer is plastic that can be biodegradable and eventually returned to nature.It is understood that a variety of sensors are being used in the popular Internet of things (IoT), which is developed to cope with the fact that it is not possible to recycle discarded sensors.

The battery is a positive triangle with a length of 2 cm and a voltage of 1.1 volts, which can ignite the LED lights for 24 hours.Is developing and supporting the use of sensors and communication chip does not contain harmful substances, once developed, a large number of sensors can be spread around volcanic investigation on temperature and vibration, investigation on the river flows, etc.

In order to compare the development team will be the new battery and the battery, after sales market to mix 1 gram of pulverized into different pot cultivation of rapeseed, mixed with available battery powder of flowerpot, rape almost no growth, and mixed with the new battery flakes, flower POTS, rape growth is different from usually flower pot does not appear.

The battery consists of two electrodes and an electrolyte filled with them.General lithium battery and other rare metals and fluorine and other harmful substances as electrode, use strong alkaline substances such as potassium hydroxide as the electrolyte, and NTT's team used the carbonization of biological tissues as electrode, will also be basic neutral electrolyte instead.
