The Plant-Microbial Fuel Cell technology is being demonstrated at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW)
The Plant-Microbial Fuel Cell generates electricity from organic matter excreted from the roots of living plants
Wetlands are estimated to account for around six percent of the earth’s surface and a new Plant-Microbial Fuel Cell technology developed at Wageningen University & Research in The Netherlands could see some of these areas become a viable source of renewable energy. More than that, the developers believe that their technology could be used to supply electricity to remote communities and in green roofs to supply electricity to households.
