Which problem are you trying to solve?
Access to energy for schoolchildren in rural areas and the preservation of the nature of electronic waste.
How are you going to solve the problem?
By recycling the li-ion batteries of laptop users to make them energy sources, manufactures lamps for domestic use, for
What is the impact of your project?
Batteries are indeed one of the sources of accumulation in the environment of certain heavy metals and other chemicals
that can lead to soil contamination and water pollution.
Reduce the amount of bat
How can the project be manufactured in the OpenLab?
To realize the prototypes we will need the
- the 3D printer or a laser cutting if it is wood or plexiglass,
-solar panel for recharger battery
-Lithium Charger Shield
Describe your project in detail
According to estimates by the World Bank and the United Nations (UN), of the 7 billion people on the planet, 1.3 billion
still do not have access to electricity. Almost half, 600 million, live in sub-Saharan Africa (two-thirds of the
continent's population), about 300 million in India, as well as in other Asian countries.
Each year, nearly 1,300
tons of lithium batteries and lithium-ion batteries are discarded. By 2020, this figure is expected to increase to
14,000 tons, 10 times more.
This problem can be remedied by recycling the batteries.
First of all we recycle laptop
batteries that have a long life
