Poster summary

Electrical energy plays a major role in our daily life and its consumption is also unlimited. There are various ways to store the electricity generated, the most common of which is the use of acid batteries and portable dry batteries. The disposal of these batteries creates environmental hazard and are toxic to humans handling them as well. The aim of this project is to develop a non-toxic, environment friendly battery using non-conventional source, i.e. the Aloe-vera plant. The work was done to develop an Aloe-vera gel based electrolyte to generate electricity through metal electrodes like a conventional acid battery. The voltage generated by our set-up was 1.27V after 30 minutes of charging through a 5V charger. The electricity generated was enough for lighting a 1V LED bulb. The future of the project is to develop a higher capacity battery and to scale down the present set-up.
