For years scientists have been working to create new types of batteries that are thin, durable and composed of non-metallic envrionmentally friendly materials. One possible solution to this comes in the form of the green stuff - algae.
Imagine wrapping paper that could be a gift in and of itself because it lights up with words like "Happy Birthday." That is one potential application of a new biodegradable battery made of cellulose, the stuff of paper.
