Recyclable Organic Solar Cells from Trees Created by Researchers via @renewablesoc
Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology‘s Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics (COPE) who collaborate with Purdue University have unveiled a new efficient, recyclable organic solar cell prototype made from trees. The material from trees used to develop the cells is actually a substrate that can be sourced not only from trees but from other plants as well. These efficient polymer solar cells are then fabricated on cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) substrates to create a more sustainable solar cell that can be quickly recycled in room-temperature water.
