These wooden chips aren’t gracing a playground, but rather
have the potential to replace the bulk of toxic and non-biodegradable materials
in modern microprocessors. Developed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison,
the chips are created from a wood product called cellulose nanofibril coated
with epoxy, which prevents it from expanding or attracting moisture like wood
GREEN FACTOR: The semiconductor chips can almost entirely biodegrade in a landfill, and provide an eco-friendly solution to e-waste.
