Scientists from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne have successfully engineered E. coli bacteria to Generate Electricity, which could have implications for waste water treatment and energy production. By using a process called extracellular electron transfer, the researchers were able to create a complete pathway for electricity generation within the bacteria, resulting in a three-fold increase in electrical current compared to previous methods. The engineered E. coli was able to thrive in brewery wastewater, demonstrating its potential for large-scale waste treatment. The flexibility of the bacterium's genetics also makes it a versatile tool for sustainable technology development.
