Scientists Feed Vitamins to Bacteria to Increase Electrical Output

Source: Dailytech

 

Researchers have made an exciting new microbiological breakthrough involving a very special type of bacteria. It has been known for some time that the bacteria, Shewanella, found commonly in water and soil, produces electricity when it digests organic matter. This led to researchers taking special interest in its potential as a natural generator. However, a major roadblock to such alternative energy plans was the fact that it was unknown until now is exactly how the bacteria accomplished its electrical generation, or whether the process could be governed.
