Abstract: The dye-sensitized solar cell was fabricated using discarded mobile phone. The recycled mobile screen was used as counter electrode. In the fabrication process, the use of recycled materials promotes eco green energy and alternative source for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC). The ITO substrate was used as photoelectrode growing zinc oxide (ZnO) by hydrothermal growth. The natural plant Alkanna tinctoria root extract was used as photosensitizer and N719 was used as reference dye. The power to conversion efficiency achieved as 0.0244% by natural plant Alkanna tinctoria root. The aim of this study is to develop a culture of using recycled items toward eco green energy production as well as research work may also be carried out by these discarded mobile screen as photo and counter electrode.
