Engineers at Duke University have developed the world’s first fully Recyclable Printed electronics. The researchers through this study hope to inspire and inculcate a methodology for the new generation of Recyclable electronics. The system got adapted due to the growing global epidemic of electronic waste which could prove harmful for the climatic conditions prevailing on the Earth.
As the trends have evolved over the past decade, people have confounded with more social networks, which arose the need for an electronically driven market. Besides that, the worldwide increase in the utilization of electronics brought along the massive destruction caused by the discard of devices that either doesn’t work anymore or have been cast away in favor of the latest technology-equipped devices.
Part of the problem that arises with the repudiation of the devices is that they are extremely hard to recycle. But in a breakthrough research study led by Franklin, his laboratory demonstrated a completely Recyclable, fully functional transistor made out of three carbon-based inks that can be easily printed onto paper or other flexible, environmentally friendly surfaces. Franklin asserted that the path to got incepted with the development of a wood-derived insulating dielectric ink called nanocellulose. Nanocellulos’s main and intriguing factor has been its biodegradable feature that has been instilled for many years and has helped to reduce the inkings of the waste produced from the abundance of electronic devices.
