Renewable and clean forms of energy are one of society’s greatest needs. More urgently, 2 billion people lack adequate sanitation. The Logan lab is working to address both energy and water needs through the development of microbial fuel cells (MFCs) for electricity production, and microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) for biofuel (hydrogen and methane gas) production. The production of electricity or biofuels is important to sustainable wastewater treatment as 5% of electricity produced in the USA is used for the water infrastructure (all aspects, including pumping, treatment, etc.), with 3% used for wastewater treatment alone.
