About Vendum Batteries Inc.

Vendum Batteries has a pending patent on a non-toxic, carbon-based light-weight battery. The paper-thin battery will contain none of the toxic elements used in conventional batteries and its cutting edge carbon nanotube and cellulose-based technology makes it entirely biodegradable. The Vendum Battery will be developed from its current low power capacity, to soon accommodate the ever-increasing global demand for durable battery power for cell phones, iPods, human implants and eventually electrical vehicles etc.

Americans purchase around 5 billion batteries, leaving 146,000 tons of battery waste behind, and given that the worldwide personal battery use is a growing $63 billion industry, the potential of this revolutionary non-toxic technology could be enormous. With growing support for the idea of replacing toxic, polluting energy sources with clean, non-toxic and biodegradable resources, there has never been a better time for Vendum's breakthrough technology.
