I don't know if this was a translation problem but organic in chemistry means carbon based not carbonate which is both oxygen and carbon. This article would have been more interesting if it didn't seem like a soft sell for OLEDs and had compared OLEDs against LEDs

OLED provides homogenous lighting without use of any other diffusers.This is great advantage.Also a panel of OLED will look like a window glass allowing sun light during day time. Also this can be made into any shape. Soon all the lighting will be replaced by OLED when it reaches 100 lumen /watt at a cost of $2/watt.

I am not negating the OLED technology but... "Today, the majority of energy produced is used for lighting buildings." - the author seems to be a little biased in his world perception. ;-) Also the actual OLED efficiency (lumens per watt) is far from the most efficient (commercial) light sources.

What is the limit to the size of OLEDs? How about variation in lighting due to temperature and other environmentals?
