GREEN REVOLUTION: MICROBES

submitted by: nsf
In Bruce Logan's lab at Penn State Univeristy, researchers are working on developing microbial fuel cells (MFC) that can generate electricity I while accomplishing wastewater treatment. In a project supported by NSF, they are researching methods to increase power generation from MFCs while at the same time recovering more of the energy as electricity. Through their research projects, Logan’s team has already proven that they can produce electricity from ordinary domestic wastewater, as...

GREEN REVOLUTION: HYDROGEN

submitted by: nsf
Host Lisa Van Pay meets with NSF-funded scientists Yang-Shao Horn and Yogi Surendranath at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as they take on the hydrogen energy challenge. Hydrogen bonds are an extremely efficient way to store energy, and scientists would like to capture this energy to power all sorts of things—from cars to laptops. Unlike other fuel sources, hydrogen can’t be harvested easily, so we have to make it. From the importance of developing an effective catalyst to...
