Seaweed-Powered Electronics: Algae Could Provide Power to Small Devices

Seaweed-Powered Electronics: Algae Could Provide Power to Small Devices

 

Go Digital

What happened? It's no secret that we need to find alternative energy sources as the world moves away from fossil fuels. Microprocessors are becoming increasingly common in small devices, and now researchers have found a way to power them using seaweed. Algae produce a current when they photosynthesize, which can be captured and used to power a microprocessor or other small device. This provides an interesting new possibility for powering small electronics without using traditional methods like batteries or solar power.

 

 

 

Stay Human

Why is this important? The researchers point out that as the world's population of tiny gadgets approaches a trillion by 2035, demand for lithium will be three times greater than supply, owing to environmental damage caused by batteries manufactured from hazardous materials.

 

What will be the impact on human beings and our planet? As we move toward a more digital world and are surrounded by small devices (IoT), it's important to find renewable and sustainable energy sources to power our devices. Seaweed is a common and abundant type of algae, making it a promising candidate for powering small electronics. This could have a major impact on the way we power our devices in the future, and help reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

 

What's next?

This is an exciting new development in the world of alternative energy, and it will be interesting to see how it progresses. Seaweed-powered electronics are still in the early stages of research, but if successful, they could have a major impact on the way we power our devices.
