Just call them wood chips

MATsolutions' insight:

With all the electronic components being manufactured every day, it is not surprising that there is concern for the environment. However, scientists have succeeded in making computer chips from wood, which will help to reduce environmental pollution.

The new chips are biodegradable, and can potentially be used as fertilizer. Growing numbers of electronic devices means more pollution over time, so the more environmentally-friendly components we can make, the more we can help to reduce pollution.
