Vendum Batteries Inc. is developing an innovative new cellulose-based power source that in the next few years could help revolutionize the powering of the automotive and aeronautical industries. This revolutionary battery is entirely biodegradable, as it is primarily composed of cellulose and uses none of the toxic elements used in traditional batteries, such as mercury, lead, chromium, or cadmium. Using cutting edge Carbon Nanotube Technology, this non toxic power source, will in the future be capable of providing higher power output, for longer periods of time, and because the batteries can be so small and light weight, it will be possible to revolutionize human implant technology such as pacemakers or cochlear implants.
