An editorial by Professor Qi Ge, a member of the vechain Steering Committee and a physicist specializing in 2D materials, sheds light on the biotech innovations that are revolutionizing sustainability through the integration of the VechainThor blockchain. The proposed solution involves using graphene, an ultra-thin, highly conductive material, to create a scaffold for bacteria. By creating specific chemical groups on the surface of graphene that attract and support the process of electron donation by bacteria, a self-growing electrically charged system, similar to a fuel cell, can be created.
However, the temperamental nature of bacteria requires certain environmental conditions for stability. Monitoring and regulating these biofuel cells requires a complex system, possibly integrated into the VechainThor blockchain, to ensure stability, efficiency and seamless integration into the global sustainability network.
Vechain, curator of VechainThor, is leading this innovation by leveraging blockchain, trusted data, smart contracts and IoT technologies for real-world applications. The current focus is on creating digital ecosystems that will revolutionize global sustainability efforts. The integration of biotechnology and blockchain marks a transformative step towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future.
