We will have energy from paper - level 2, A11

Sony made a new type of battery. All you need for this battery is a piece of old paper. You will put this paper into water with enzymes. The enzymes will use paper and they will make energy. The whole process is good for nature because people don’t use chemicals or dangerous metals in the process.

The process is quite simple. It uses the enzymes which change paper into sugar. Then when you mix it with oxygen and some more enzymes, you get electrons which will make electricity. It was tested on a small machine and it was very good.

The idea came from nature. A similar mechanism is used by animals which eat wood and change it into energy.
