Akermin proposes, in collaboration with the University of New Mexico, to demonstrate the viability of electronic connections between biomolecules and engineered surfaces in order to harvest power and energy through biologic systems. This work is in part based on Akermin's proprietary enzyme… More

SBIR Phase I:Stabilized Bioanode Enzymes for Micro Power Biofuel Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Wayne Gellett, BEng
Award Amount: $146,837.00
This SBIR Phase I project will develop an enzymatic bio-fuel cell using a unique enzyme stabilization technology. The technology overcomes the stability and lifetime issues faced by conventional bio-fuel cells where rare metals serve as the catalyst. Development of the bioanode for the fuel cell… More
