Turning Beer Power Into Battery Power

Engineers at the University of Colorado at Boulder have brewed up an innovative way to manufacture carbon-based materials for fuel cell storage.

The university reports that its Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering has found that sugary wastewater from breweries is an ideal medium for incubating a fast-growing fungus for use in advanced battery technology. This innovation could also decrease the cost of wastewater treatment for beer makers.
