Commercial paper battery a step closer
BillerudKorsnäs and Uppsala University have together taken an important step towards the future’s paper batteries. Together they have taken basic research based on pure cellulose from algae and developed it to work with the same type of fibre that BillerudKorsnäs usually uses to manufacture packaging material.
The long-term aim is to enable large-scale production and the future use of paper batteries for applications in areas such as smart packaging. With electrodes based on cellulose from wood fibre, the ambition is that in the future, it will be possible to recycle batteries along with their boxes and make them into new boxes or paper batteries (Press Release BillerudKorsnäs, 12 July 2018).
