Fuel Cell Development

The project uses microbial fuels cells to generate electricity, optimizing these cells to improve power generation from various water biomass. The project uses a research system characterization and optimization to increase the hydrogen production rate and total energy recovery, by using bioelectrochemically assisted microbial reactors. The project also develops bio-based methods for the SADE, efficient and economical production of hydrogen, to serve as an energy carrier for fuel cells or engines.
