Researchers and scientists are constantly working to develop solutions that can save our future world, from solving problems like increasing pollution and climate change to producing clean energy. A group of researchers from the University of Naples Parthenope recently published a paper, titled “ Development and Performance analysis of Biowaste based Microbial Fuel Cells fabricated employing Additive Manufacturing technologies ,” about their efforts to test two different configurations of microbial fuel cells (MFCs): bio-electrochemical devices which can directly produce power by converting stored energy into a substrate. MFCs have this unique capability thanks to electrogenic bacteria that can produce and transfer electrons to an electrode with which they are already in contact. The abstract reads, “In this work two different configurations of MFCs are tested, evaluating the importance of the operative conditions on power production. All the MFCs were fabricated employing 3D printing technologies and, by using biocompatible materials […]
