Bacteria “Batteries” – bacteria may be key to turning waste water into energy

Waste water, the stuff that you flush and let run down the drain, generally not thought off as something that’s worth anything but it turns out that it may hiding the secret for some renewable energy. Turns out that it has a lot of potential for useful applications and purple bacteria may help us make use of it.

The stuff that ends up in waste treatment plants is full of potential but we can’t harvest it as of yet. Purple bacteria, which occurs naturally in a variety of habitats is a safe solution to this problem. Their process of photosynthesis is such that it allows the creation of hydrogen gas and breaks down carbon.

This process, if developed, can lead to more sustainable options for large groups of people. After all, everywhere there are people, there is sewage that needs to broken down and cleaned up. Check out the article for more information.
