Microbial fuel cells could solve the shortage of drinking water in developing countries

Microbial fuel cells

Microbial fuel cells are beginning to acquire a great deal of attention as they continue to show promising results in field tests. Microbial fuel cells are filled with bacteria, most of which is harmless to humans, which feed off of waste and produce hydrogen gas as a result. Such a system can be used to effectively treat waste water, making it clean and ready to drink despite its previous contaminants. Furthermore, these fuel cells can provide a vast amount of electricity, if the bacteria housed within is given enough waste…
