DescriptionFuelium, spin-off of the CSIC located at the UAB Research Park, offers paper batteries capable of powering a variety of single-use devices, such as portable diagnostic, and discarded without recycling.
The batteries Fuelium only generate the amount of energy required for each application and do not contain heavy metals harmful to health. They are composed mainly of paper, biodegradable carbon and metals. The Fuelium technology will enable the generation of new solutions in the field of diagnosis and other sectors so far are not possible.
The battery is capable of giving a nominal voltage of 3V for at least 30 minutes, and a current of 5 mA in a smaller volume of 1 cm3.
