Research Institution

Biologically-based systems using electrochemical energy conversion and storage (such as bio-fuel cells) have the potential to meet the ever increasing requirements for smaller energy storage systems for applications such as implantable electronic devices, biosensing, microelectrical mechanical systems (MEMS), ground sensors, and micro air vehicles (MAV). Bio-fuel cells offer the potential for highly efficient, scalable power systems with the ability to utilize a number of fuels sources, possibly extracted from the surrounding environment, enabling extended power system endurance. Lynntech proposes the development of an enzymatic-based bio-fuel cell capable of delivering high power with a minimum footprint. During the Phase I project, Lynntech has successfully developed and tested biofuel cell prototypes for the oxidation of glucose. During the Phase II project, a prototype power system will be designed, fabricated, tested, and delivered to DOD.
