The researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst reported on the development of a very sustainable energy source. It’s made from bacteria, and powered by squander.

This is a very interesting technology, said Xiaomeng Liu, PhD student at the University of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Western Massachusetts in the sciences. That’s actually green energy, and unlike other so-called green energy sources, its production is very environmentally friendly.

The presented biofilm is a thin sheet of bacterial cells that weighs around a thin sheet of paper. The chemical is called the sulfurreducens that is modified naturally. This bacteria, glycerides that produce electricity, are used previously in microbial batteries to power electrical devices. The past methods have the same disadvantage as those where live bacteria needed to be fed to provide nutrients for a solution. In the new development, there are now colonies of dead bacteria which aren’t necessary for a feeding.

Colonies of G. Sulfurreducens bacteria grow in thin-films that break out the DNA of individual cells. The science can cut any shape you want from these films. Using a small kilomium, a piece of bacteria was placed between the electrodes and sealed with a soft, sticky, and breathable polymer that can apply directly to the skin.

The study says that wearable electronics are not the most critical to wearable electronics. The batteries are broken and have to be replaced. They are bulky, heavy and infuriating, too. A transparent, small, thin and flexible biofilm capable of generating a steady and steady supply of electricity, and can be worn like a patch directly on the skin solves all this problem.
