Organic flash memory

The boffins at University of Tokyo have manged to develop the “organic flash memory,” a non-volatile memory which boasts a similar basic structure as flash memory despite being made out of organic materials. Both erasing and reading voltages of the new flash memory can go as low as 6V and 1V, respectively. Apart from that, data can be written in and erased from the memory for over a thousand times without any problems. This unprecedented level of flexibility allows the flash memory to see action for large-area sensors, electronic paper and other large-area electronic devices assuming its memory retention time is able to be extended. Since it is organic, does that mean you can use this as some sort of techno-fertilizer once it has run its course?
