"Many batteries use corrosive or flammable chemicals here, but the scientists working on this new study have found an alternative. Chitosan is a biological material derived from chitin. The author notes that "the most abundant source of chitosan is the exoskeletons of crustaceans," including crabs, shrimps, and lobsters, which means that the material could be sourced from seafood waste."

With an order of Old Bay Fries on the side.

I was just reading this article. Interesting new electrolyte made from bio-waste aside, why in the world are they talking about letting the zinc or lithium biodegrade? We should be re-using those minerals. SMH

"Hu estimates the biodegradable electrolyte could be broken down by microbes within five months. In addition, the batteries would use zinc, which is far more biodegradable than than lead or lithium."
