The NCBE is delighted to be able to supply this unique fuel cell to schools, which is based on original research by Dr Peter Bennetto, formerly of King’s College, London.
ABOUT THE FUEL CELL
With readily-available chemicals (such as methylene blue), the fuel cell can be used to generate a small electrical current from the metabolic activities of ordinary yeast. Fuel cells like this are used by a leading UK brewery to test the activity of the yeast used for their ales.
The microbial fuel cell is ideal for investigations of respiration and students have even won prizes with it at international science fairs.
FUEL CELL CONTENTS
The NCBE’s fuel cell is supplied with neoprene gaskets, carbon fibre electrode material, cation-exchange membrane and an illustrated instruction booklet.
