The production of energy from organic matter present in wastewater is a new and exciting area of research. Microbial fuel cells (MFC) that achieve direct electron transfer from bacteria to an electrode show great promise as a new method of using bacteria to make electricity from the oxidation of organic matter. MFC and characteristics of metal-reducing bacteria that can grow in MFC, along with studies on biological energy production in the form of hydrogen and methane gases, are to be considered for the 228th American Chemical Society National Meeting to be held in Philadelphia, PA, on 8/22-27/2004.
