Scientists from Binghamton University in new York have developed a special battery, which works with fluid with bacteria. However, the battery consists mainly of paper. British researchers have developed a unique bio-battery that runs on liquid rich in bacteria colonies. When it is applied to a special chromatographic paper in microbes run the redox reactions that generate energy. One battery is hardly enough to charge electroavtomat, but energy will be enough to charge a mobile phone. According to the developers, the batteries can work up to several weeks and are especially useful in remote areas with limited resources.
