Studies from University of Wisconsin Update Current Data on Electrochemicals
November 9th, 2011
"The application of wireless sensors is an important approach for monitoring natural water systems in remote locations; however, limited power sources are a key challenge for successful application of these sensors. Sediment microbial fuel cells (SMFCs) have shown potential as a sustainable power source with low maintenance requirements to power wireless sensors," scientists in Milwaukee, Wisconsin report.
"This study examines electricity generation in lab-scale SMFCs with the sediment from Lake Michigan. Two SMFCs are operated in parallel with a difference in cathode arrangement (floating cathode vs. bottom cathode). The data show that the SMFC with a floating cathode...
