We will have energy from paper - level 3, A11
Sony developed 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 to make energy. The whole process is environmentally friendly because there are no chemicals or dangerous metals used in the process.
The process is quite simple. It uses the enzymes which change paper into sugar. Then when you add oxygen and some more enzymes, you get electrons which will generate electricity. It has been tested on a small fan and it worked without problems.
The idea came from nature. A similar mechanism is used by termites which digest wood and turn it into energy.
