ELECTRICITY GENERATION FROM WASTEWATER

Posted on Updated on

In addition to wind and solar energy, the so-called bio fuels are becoming increasingly common. Generating energy through burning, vaporizing, or fermenting biomass such as leftover plant material, vegetable waste, and manure are well-tried methods. A new shoot on this branch of energy production is the microbial fuel cell, which is capable of directly generating energy from substances such as waste water. At the present time, this has only been done in the lab, but the first results and applications of this new technology are very promising.
