Power generation is produced using a certain bacteria. In the result of the activity of these bacteria causes a chemical reaction that affects the anode is the source of electrons that are under the root system. The cathode is graphite located on the surface. Between the cathode and the anode, there is a voltage. The plants are living catalyst: on the one hand, the rhizomes of the plant, bacteria multiply more actively, and the other plants can be processed into biomass inedible nitrogen and absorb heavy elements.
We have a laboratory sample. Electricity that it produces is enough to operate a small led element. The lawn is larger and will produce more energy. First, we want to equip three to four square meters, so it was easy to care, — said Nikita Volchenko, candidate of biological Sciences and lecturer at the Kuban state University (KubSU)
Currently, the laboratory is unable to obtain the voltage to 9-12 volts. However, according to Nikita Volchenko, the potential of the invention is not fully appreciated. Projects similar to the development of Krasnodar teachers, underway and abroad. But in Russia, none of the known groups of scientists have not reached the stage of field experiment. If the experience of the Krasnodar scientists are successful, they will make an application for a patent.
It should be noted that the development of the Krasnodar already noted in professional competitions. This year the work of scientists of KubSU in the field of microbial fuel technology received a silver medal at the contest of scientific-technical creativity, and also took the gold at the Moscow international salon of inventions and innovation technologies "Archimedes-2015". published
