Waste water feeds fuel cell

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


A research team from Pennsylvania State University constructed a cell in which the microbes feed on organic matter from domestic waste water. The fuel cell is too expensive for practical use now; but if the cost could be brought down, larger, similar cells could purify waste water and generate electricity at the same time.
