Better than nature: Artificial biofilm increases energy production in microbial fuel cells

Microbial fuel cells exploit the metabolism of bacteria in order to generate electricity. A new type of biofilm could soon make this relatively young technology considerably more effective, more stable, and easier to use. A research team has succeeded in producing a material that is far better suited for energy production in fuel cells than natural biofilms.
