Clean Water

In addition to representing an affordable source of renewable energy, two-chamber microbial fuel cells produce water as a natural byproduct of the chemical reaction that takes place between oxygen, hydrogen, and electrons in the cathode chamber. The clean water produced by microbial fuel cells could be just as important as energy to people living in environments where drinking water is hard to come by. This is another reason why we chose to focus our efforts on developing a cheap and efficient microbial fuel cell.

We hope that the oxygen-sensitive fluorescent operon, which we've worked on this year, will help ourselves and others reach this goal.
