Description

Our bodies are energy rich with biofuels and scientists have been developing ways to use them as energy alternatives. Enzymatic biofuel cells, small battery-like devices which generate electricity by breaking down chemicals in body fluids such as blood, sweat and tears, could be used as an alternative over standard chemical fuel cells. We burn roughly 2,000 - 2,500 calories a day which would be enough to power a basic smartphone and by using our bodies enzymes our energy can be sustainable, easily produced in a lab or donated from living beings. Jose Marcelino Ortiz and Margaret J. Howell discuss the science behind our internal fuel on The Lip News.
