Quantum Dot LED technology might be better recognized as QLED, the name Samsung and TCL use in marketing material, but you might not know that its production requires some pretty toxic components – luckily Japanese scientists have found a way to not only reduce these harmful substances, but also make good use of some food waste.

As reported by Tom’s Hardware, it has been found that rice husks can be used as a decent source of porous silicon (Si) and silicon oxide (SiO2) which, like traditional silicon, has a wide range applications in the world of technology.

Ken-ichi Saitow, the study’s lead author and professor of chemistry at Hiroshima University, spoke to Tech Xplore about it, saying: deliberate when using nanomaterials. Our proposed process and manufacturing method for QDs minimizes these concerns.
