The first batteries designed for the circular economy
Cradle to Cradle Product Design Award — Best Overall Project
The first in a series of objects for the circular economy. Uncompromisingly sustainable, these batteries are made with non-toxic, recycled materials, can be recharged with salt and vinegar, remanufactured, composted, and recycled.
Each material was carefully selected based on performance, durability, and sustainability attributes, earning the highest material reutilization score. A redox reaction provides the electric current.
Less but Better
Volta's unique pill-form is not just different—it's better. The affordances and signifiers makes it easy to remove from battery compartments, differentiate terminals, and disassemble.
