Developing a 1-millimeter-thick paper battery generating electricity using glucose and cellullose

Every year, 15 billion miniature cells and batteries end up in the trash; and often it's not the right one. In France only, 30% of used batteries end their life in household waste bins instead of the recycling center or collection point. A problem that is all the more important as batteries contain many toxic substances. Without forgetting that these small electronic objects that we find everywhere are very energy-intensive: to manufacture a disposable alkaline battery, you need 50 times more energy than what it can provide throughout its life. The French start-up BeFC, a CNRS spin-off, has developed after decades of patented leading research, BeFCa a revolutionary one-millimeter-thick paper battery capable of generating electricity using glucose and cellulose. The use of bio-sourced materials improves ease of disposal and recycling. BeFCa is metal-free, organic and biosourced, safe and sustainable Furthermore, BeFC can provide an organic energy solution adapted to meet the different needs of customers, adjusting the form factor to meet the requested technical specifications.
