Production of light now possible without electricity, batteries or solar energy
Houston firm unlocking the secrets of nature through science to the benefit of society
HOUSTON (April 3) — Imagine using one gram of a biological source to power appliances or run an electric car without a battery. How about bringing light to developing populations with no access or funding for electrical, nuclear or solar power.
Dr. Raul Cuero, a microbiologist at Bio Capital Holdings in Houston, and his group of young, creative scientists at the International Park of Creativity in Colombia have created an unconventional source for a safer, economical, heatless biodegradable light.
This new scientific discovery has unlimited benefits, from providing light to those who cannot afford or have access to conventional power sources of electricity, to offering a much safer way to provide light to everyone around the world.
This breakthrough does not require electrical conductivity from a main power source, thereby reducing the potential for electrocution or fires from high voltage wires. Furthermore, unlike batteries, unsightly power plants and electrical wires, this technology does not pollute the environment, produce heat, or require large equipment, thus minimizing costs to a fraction of today’s standards.
Cuero conceptualized this idea based on his understanding of the hundreds of atoms present in DNA. Consequently, his biological systems are influenced by the same type of energy and/or electromagnetism produced by these atoms, where biolight is produced by carbo-ionic extracts produced by a biological source. Hence, Cuero has been able to make molecular changes to particular microbes in order to produce LED light.
The use of the carbo-ionic extracts to produce biolight was recently demonstrated with Cuero’s group lighting a Christmas tree, showing its function at different wavelengths and colors (white, green, red, blue and yellow). The light even proved to be long-lasting, with a period of two continuous weeks recorded in the trial.
Cuero and his team developed the biotechnology to produce LED light by taking advantage of the biological system’s ability to use energy for a beneficial purpose. The group is working on increasing the voltage/wattage to apply this technology to other uses and is focused on making this technology accessible to everyone.
To date, Cuero has developed five mathematical physical formulas for producing biolight from the carbo-ionic extracts that is constant and reliable. This will lead to a predictable model that, in the near future, could result in a new biophysical concept, using physics to explain a biological process.
In addition to producing biolight, the carbo-ionic extracts have several additional applications that include enhancing plant growth and promoting cell growth during fermentation. Moreover, the carbo-ionic extracts possess anti-UV properties that would be useful in several different industries.
