Microbial Fuel Cell Service

The transfer of electrons among molecules is essential to all organisms, microbes are no exception, for this process generates energy by which they need to survive. While some microorganisms living in oxygen-deprived environments have evolved a unique form of breathing that involves excreting and pumping out electrons, have the potential to act as electricity-producing components that can be used in microbial fuel cells (MFCs), which can be put into use of contributing energy.
