小编摘要:近日,索尼公司展示了一款非常新颖的环保电池,像人类通过消化食物产生能量一样,这款电池可以“消化”丢弃的废纸,从而产生电能。

导读:2007年,索尼展示了一款使用“生物电池”的随身听,这种有机电池通过“消化的”食物产生能量,就像人类一样。但近日,公司展示了更为有用的一款电池产品,可以将废纸“消化”之后转化为能量的电池。

A digestive enzyme, cellulase, 'breaks down' the cellulose in paper into glucose, a sugar that Sony's 'bio batteries' can use as fuel

In 2007, Sony demonstrated a Walkman that used a 'bio battery' - an organic battery that generates electricity by 'digesting' food, just like humans do.

But a new demonstration from the company shows off a much more useful product - battery that can 'digest' waste paper and turn it into energy.

The prototype - on show at Eco-Products 2011 in Tokyo, shows how it could be possible to use enzymes to 'break down' waste paper into a fuel we can use. The prototype generates enough energy to power a (very) small fan.

The process is unlike conventional batteries - and initially at least, much more like the action of a digestive system.

Sony demonstrated a battery that can 'digest' waste paper - turning rubbish into useful energy

A digestive enzyme, cellulase, 'breaks down' the cellulose in paper into glucose, a sugar that Sony's 'bio batteries' can use as fuel.

The company's bio batteries are now so advanced that the company showed off one thin enough to fit inside a greetings card alongside the paper-digesting battery.

It uses fruit juice for fuel, and can generate enough power to play a melody from inside the car.

As it stands, though, the 'paper-eating' battery can only generate a very small amount of power.
