Default Electricity generation from waste water plants (microbial fuel cell)

Here is something quite interesting. Using waste water in a microbial fuel cell to generate electricity.

A new energy source: Major advance made in generating electricity from wastewater

Quote:
Engineers at Oregon State University have made a breakthrough in the performance of microbial fuel cells that can produce electricity directly from wastewater, opening the door to a future in which waste treatment plants not only will power themselves, but will sell excess electricity.

The new technology developed at OSU can now produce 10 to 50 more times the electricity, per volume, than most other approaches using microbial fuel cells, and 100 times more electricity than some.

...

OSU researchers reported several years ago on the promise of this technology, but at that time the systems in use produced far less electrical power. With new concepts reduced anode-cathode spacing, evolved microbes and new separator materials the technology can now produce more than two kilowatts per cubic meter of liquid reactor volume. This amount of power density far exceeds anything else done with microbial fuel cells.
