Edible electronics

Edible electronics

Did you know you can safely eat a battery?
Starting from common food ingredients and additives, we developed the first fully edible rechargeable battery, a major milestone for edible electronics. This emerging research field aims at developing a safe-to-ingest, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective technology, exploiting food-grade materials as electronics constituents.
We are currently involved in two EU-funded projects, ELFO and ROBOFOOD, aiming at implementing edible electronic components and materials for applications in medicine, food monitoring and edible robots.

Valerio Galli (B.Sc. 2019, M.Sc. 2022 Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology, Politecnico di Milano) is a PhD in Physics at Politecnico di Milano, in collaboration with the PME group, led by Mario Caironi at CNST. His research within the RoboFood project focuses on edible energy sources, such as supercapacitors and batteries. His research experience includes an internship at BeDimensional S.p.A. (2021, Genova), where he worked on 2D materials for electrochemistry, and a research fellowship at CNST (IIT, Milan).
