Swedish and American researchers have just developed a fully recyclable lighting component with what Science Daily is terms a “new super material”: graphene. Graphene is both inexpensive to produce and is 100% recyclable, and could be used to create glowing wallpaper made out of plastic–much like )LEDs could. But graphene appears to improve on OLEDs in some very big ways . . .

As you know, we’ve been big fans of the very efficient, long-lasting Light Emitting Diodes and Organic LED technology. But as Science Daily notes, there are still problems:
