Biodegradable and compostable batteries for precision agriculture and decentralized energy systems BIDEKO
The project aims to change the current paradigm of primary batteries from a ‘one-size-fits-all’ to a new ´tailor-made’ model where batteries are ecodesigned to fit the life cycle of the device to be powered. The project plans to materialize this change of paradigm by developing battery demonstrators, specifically tailored to power devices within the area of precision agriculture, a sector with large growth expectations in the future.
