Microbial Fuel Cells Generate Energy While Clearing Biowaste from Water Developing the technology to generate energy from waste and renewable materials is becoming an increasingly important priority in the United States, as energy derived from fossil fuels is both expensive and environmentally harmful. Microbial fuel cells are an emerging technology for producing electricity directly from biodegr…

Low-Cost, Sustainable Multifunctional Coatings Nanomaterials and nanotechnology have attracted a great deal of attention over the last 20 years because of their perceived potential. However, in many cases the processes to produce nanomaterials are highly complex, not readily scalable, and expensive; worse, some nanomaterial manufacturing processes produce harmful wastes. Researchers at ORNL are w…
