About Vendum Batteries
Vendum Batteries has a pending patent on a non-toxic, carbon-based light-weight battery. The paper-thin battery contains 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 i.e. cell phones, iPods, gadgets, human implants and eventually electrical vehicles etc.

Americans purchase around 5 billion batteries, leaving at least 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.

About Thomas Swan
Founded in 1926, Thomas Swan began production of nanotubes in 2004 and is now recognised as a leader in the field of carbon nanomaterial industrial production. The company has recently announced an increase in production capacity to 50kg per month and is working in selected application fields to bring its products to market. Thomas Swan currently manufactures over 100 products, from kilogram to multi-tonne quantities and exports to over 80 countries worldwide.
