BillerudKorsnäs announced that it partnered with researchers at Uppsala University 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 paper and packaging. This development opens up the possibility of eco-friendly batteries, with the long-term goal being large-scale production at a low price.
“It’s not unusual for researchers to present new, eco-friendly technology. What’s special in this case is the model for collaboration between BillerudKorsnäs and Uppsala University that has resulted in technology adapted to large-scale production processes,” says Lars Sandberg, project manager for innovation at BillerudKorsnäs.
“We’re combining the deep theoretical expertise of the researchers with our understanding of innovation and production technology. By successfully creating a joint platform and having fantastic people on our team, we can focus our work on the future, on creating an advanced product that can still be produced in an effective way,” says Lars Sandberg.
