Scientists Have Discovered an Enzyme That Converts Air Into Electricity

Australian researchers have uncovered an enzyme capable of transforming air into energy. The enzyme Huc utilizes small amounts of hydrogen in the air to generate an electrical current.

Huc is a “natural battery” that produces a sustained electrical current from air or added hydrogen. While this research is at an early stage, the discovery of Huc has considerable potential to develop small air-powered devices, for example as an alternative to solar-powered devices.
