HOW TO – Make microbial fuel cells

Jason sent in this waste powered fuel cell resource, not super-detailed but a start if you’d like to attempt making one – “This website aims to help someone to build a microbial fuel cell (MFC) using relatively inexpensive and readily available materials. The method is based on the microbial fuel cells built by Abbie Groff, a student at Conestoga Valley High School in Lancaster, PA. The research she performed with her MFCs helped her win the Grand Champion Award at the 2005 Lancaster County Science Fair.”Link.
