The promise of batteries that come from trees

Stora Enso, in Finland, describes itself as "one of the largest private forest owners in the world". As such, it has a lot of trees, which it uses to make wood products, paper and packaging, for example. Now it wants to make batteries as well – electric vehicle batteries that charge up in as little as eight minutes.

The promise of batteries that come from trees

As demand for electric vehicles soars, scientists are searching for materials to make sustainable batteries. Lignin, from waste paper pulp, is shaping up to be a strong contender.

        Personally I would shun anything that involves cutting of trees.
