Volta
Better Batteries

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.

Material Selection

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.
