Scientists have found two types of bacteria that can accumulate and store energy. Microorganisms grow inside magnetite crystals and charge their electrons, creating thus the natural battery. To maintain the ability to live these bioaccumulators enjoyed by other bacteria.

Professor geomikrobiologii University of Tübingen (Germany), Andreas Kappler said that strange strains of bacteria can be used in geochemical industry. Magnetite is used for water purification from toxic metals, absorbing and restoring toxic compounds. Bacteria-batteries will, in turn, cleaned of toxins magnetite crystals, improving their filtering ability. Far-reaching plans for scientists include the use of bacteria to power nanodevices.

Scientists were able to open the live chargers in the study of strains of bacteria that live in soil and sediments. Biologists have noticed an unusual relationship between the two types of microorganisms.

When the vicinity of Geobacter sulfurreducens, eating iron oxides and hydrocarbons appear microbes species Rhodopseudomonas palustris, between organisms occurs continuous process of metabolism. Geobacter sulfurreducens night absorb the water contained in the iron ions and regenerate them, reducing the degree of oxidation of +3 to +2. Unnecessary elements ejected in the form of magnetite. Afternoon Rhodopseudomonas palustris eat molecules restored and re-oxidized iron it using magnetite crystals as batteries.

The successful symbiosis of bacteria partner manages literally infinitely use iron compounds, spending only carbon dioxide, water and organic matter.
