German scientists have developed a biological screen that consists entirely of biological materials and turns into a compostable component instead of electronic waste after use.
Electronic waste is considered one of the most damaging wastes to the environment due to the toxic substances in its components. This problem seems unlikely to be solved anytime soon as technology continues to advance rapidly, but scientists continue to conduct studies on electronics using biological materials to minimize the release of these toxic substances.
Scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of technology (KIT), Germany, were the first to succeed in producing screens that proved biologically recyclable. These screens, which scientists have produced, are not scrapped as waste after use, but turn into compostable biological components.
