(KCPW/ Explore Utah Science)  Batteries that power our electronic devices contain heavy metals and other materials that are toxic to the environment. A new battery technology inspired by biology, bio-batteries, overcomes many of these problems. The technology may one day lead to biodegradable batteries that store energy more efficiently than today’s heavy duty lithium-ion batteries. Kim Schuske has the story.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your
    layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

You matter!
