Interesting "green" technological discovery

I read e-science news and a few other similar blogs because, well, because advances happen so quickly, discoveries are so exciting, and I'm fascinated/obsessed with nanotechnology. Discoveries in nanotechnology are happening so fast and over such a broad scope it's hard to believe that the popular news media completely ignores it. It's almost an antidote to what we read about in the newspapers.  I'm not saying that we're on the brink of a revolution like the one that occurred after the development of the transistor, but... This article on a "natural" alternative to cobalt for use in the cathodes of lithium-ion batteries, is an example! Even if it isn't about nanotechnology.
