Northwestern University researchers have found that microbial fuel cells designed to produce electricity and clean wastewater, or biofilm reactors, are more efficient when biofilms don't become too thick.
When our phones are about to die, what do we do? We charge the battery! But what if we had something more efficient than a battery? This research team from Northeastern University is working on a portable fuel cell that converts chemical energy... Read More
