Bacterial Fuel Cells

One thing’s for sure – burning hydrocarbons has to be done away with, and soon. The race is on to find new energy sources for our multitudinous needs. One of these potential solutions is to use bacteria in fuel cells. After all, they can produce energy from a wide range of materials, such as glucose and sewage, and the growing field of synthetic biology could engineer new bugs that output enough power to be commercially useful.
