Fully green energy harvester

The project is to use cellulose-based materials from natural products for fabricating triboelectric nanogenerators (TENG) that can harvest energy from mechanical motions such as body motions, pedestrian and cars for powering small electronics.

As all materials are green, the TENGs have less environmental impact. Alternative applications can be self-powered sensors for the internet of things (IoT), healthcare (for older people that live alone) and security (alarm). The material nature makes the system cost-effective and environmentally friendly. It is easy to be scaled up for the industrial production level due to the abundant materials resource.
