Biodegradable Nanogenerators Lead to Less Electronic Waste

ECE Professor Ravinder Dahiya’s research on “Aligned PLLA electrospun fibres based biodegradable triboelectric nanogenerator” was published in Nano Energy. His research demonstrates a fully biodegradable triboelectric nanogenerator to tackle the global issue of electronic waste. The approach can provide an attractive green energy harvesting machine to power portable devices at a large scale, without having to worry about end-of-life electronic waste management.
