Sony uses an enzyme called cellulose in the water mixture to break down the paper to glucose sugar. After breaking down the paper, the enzymes were left with sugar that had been created from the cellulose. then sugar is processed by enzymes and oxygen and converted to hydrogen ions and electrons, which provide the fuel for the battery.

This battery uses fruit juice as a fuel, and can generate enough power to play a melody from inside the car. This battery generate small amount of power which can run MP3 player. This battery does not contain any harsh chemicals or metals.
