About This Project
Microbial fuel cells are a new technology with the dual function of treating wastewater and producing electricity. Microbes in soil constantly oxidize organic matter and make electricity that we can harvest.
By including a plant and symbiotic soil microbes, we will create a plant-microbial fuel cell (PMFC) that performs better than standard microbial fuel cells. Our design uses wetlands soil as well as new materials and processes that will improve efficiency.
