Abstract: CFDRC is developing an enzyme catalyzed power source, Bio-Battery, which generates energy from readily-available fuels (sugars, alcohols, etc.). The Bio-Battery can power applications for both military and civilian needs. Additionally applications are seen in biomedical devices, where power generation from physiological fluids could lead to improved implantable medical devices. The technology’s benefits include high energy density, safety, low-cost and renewable biocatalysts, and logistically-favorable fuels. A mature prototype has been demonstrated.
