Finnish researchers have created edible protein from electricity

An incredible collaborative effort from scientists at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, has resulted in a batch of single-cell protein. And while this achievement may seem redundant, we must clarify that this protein was created by simply utilizing energy and matter like electricity and carbon dioxide. In essence,…


Footsteps on floorboards could produce a new form of renewable energy

Scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have found an ingenious, and eco-friendly, way to generate usable electricity from floorboards. Wood pulp contains cellulose nanofibers that, when treated with specific chemicals, are capable of producing electrical charge, as a result of contact with unprocessed fibers. The breakthrough, as pointed out by the team, could pave the…

Paper-Based Microbial Fuel Cells Can Produce Current On Their Own-1

Scientists demonstrate electricity producing capabilities of 3D paper-based microbial fuel cells

Scientists at Ames-based Iowa State University have demonstrated that three-dimensional microbial fuel cells (or MFC) could channel liquids through themselves via capillary action, thus eliminating the need for any kind of external power. Appearing in this month's issue of the TECHNOLOGY journal, the research opens up a range of possibilities when it comes to producing electric…
