Archiv:Microbial fuel cell
In the last years (microbial) fuel cell technology advanced significantly, involving air cathode and single chamber designs and utilizing low-cost materials as charcoal for the anode. Especially for farmers (having a lot of animals dung), or others that have bigger animals in the neighbourhood, this could prove valuable.
- Material affordability before efficiency. (Use of easy to get materials for the electrodes!)
- (tdb) Option of using this in combination to biothermanl energie (two different processes emerging from the same source! one being transformation of heat to electricity, the other direct electricity harvesting).
Prototype 1 - MFC
- single chamber
- cathode: charcoal
- anode: stainless steel
This is up to come in the next weeks if everything works as expected.
This will not be accomplished too qickly. Don't expect it before fall.
