Biodegradable batteries as sustainable power sources for portable devices

PhD: Perla Alday

Director:  Dr Juan Pablo Esquivel and Dr Neus Sabaté

Abstract:

This thesis presents the development of biodegradable batteries aligned with the sustainability principles of circular economy. The batteries presented in this thesis are composed of organic materials such as biopolymers, carbon electrodes and organic redox species. The work includes the design, fabrication and characterization of different battery approaches. It is shown that these biodegradable batteries can provide suitable voltage and power to substitute conventional coin cell batteries in portable electronic devices. Moreover, the developed batteries can be disposed of with minimal environmental impact because they biodegrade by the action of microorganisms present in soils and water bodies. This battery approach can potentially eliminate the end-of-life concerns posed by current primary battery technologies.
