Bio Battery, an introduction

Bio Battery (also known as Biobattery) is an energy accumulated device that is motorized by organic compounds, usually glucose, like glucose in human blood. Many electrons and protons are released due to the breakdown of glucose by enzymes present in our body. Thus, bio batteries directly get energy from glucose by using enzymes present in the human body to break down glucose. An interesting fact has been extracted from new research which discloses how bacteria generate electricity when a protein in their cell membranes gets in touch with a mineral surface. Shewanella oneidensis** is marine bacteria that can develop electric currents when bared to heavy metals like iron and manganese. These proteins can transmit electrons transversely to a membrane at a rate faster enough so that the energy produced is sufficient so that bacteria can survive. The functioning of these bacteria will help scientists in making those bio batteries that could store energy for sensors in a remote environment.

Human blood and sugar glucose are considered as most priceless sources of power because they happen naturally, are easy to get and no harmful emissions are reproduced. Another interesting battery was developed that uses human urine as its fuel. The device’s size is like a credit card size and might form the source of economical, disposable disease testing kits. What makes it more valuable is that the battery and devices for testing are incorporated into one disposable chip**.
