CAESAREA, Israel, October 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Emefcy Limited, a global leader in Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) implementation for wastewater treatment, today announced it has been named in the prestigious 2010 Global Cleantech 100, produced by the Cleantech Group.
Scientists have been hard at work harnessing the power of microbes as an attractive source of clean energy.
Showcasing its energy research initiatives for an Earth Day event on April 22 at the Pentagon, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) will highlight the microbial fuel cell, a device with the potential to revolutionize naval energy use by converting decomposed marine organisms into electricity.
PNAS study documents puzzling movement of electricity-producing bacteria near energy sources.
Bacteria that generate significant amounts of electricity could be used in microbial fuel cells to provide power in remote environments or to convert waste to electricity.
A process that cleans wastewater and generates electricity can also remove 90 percent of salt from brackish water or seawater, according to an international team of researchers from China and the U.S.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota studying bacteria capable of generating electricity have discovered that riboflavin (commonly known as vitamin B-2) is responsible for much of the energy produced by these organisms.
Scientists and Australian beer maker Foster's are teaming up to generate clean energy from brewery waste water - by using sugar-consuming bacteria.
