Graphite In Batteries

Graphite in batteries - the importance of the environment

While the development and increasing reach of electronic devices has brought huge benefits, it is important to sound a note of caution. Electronic devices, by definition, are powered by electricity. This raises all sorts of challenges with regards to powering them in an environmentally-friendly manner. These challenges are being addressed in three main ways. Firstly, through looking at ways to generate electricity from clean and or renewable sources (as opposed to traditional fossil fuels). Secondly, by making the devices themselves more efficient in their use of energy (and encouraging responsible use). Thirdly, by making the batteries themselves both more efficient and cleaner. This last has been a major contributor to the increasing use of graphite in batteries.
