IITian to generate power from sewage water

Manoj Mandelia, a 23-years old student from IIT-Kharagpur, has created a method to produce electricity from sewage water. “I developed a product which uses the concept of microbial fuel cell, a bio-electrochemical system that drives current by mimicking bacterial interactions found in nature,” said Mandelia, reports Bharat Ghai from TopNews.in.

Mandelia’s project named Localised Operation of Bio-cells Using Sewage (LOCUS) is able to reduced chemical oxygen demand in sewage water by about 60-80 percent. He explained that LOCUS is a microbial fuel cell which along with sewage treatment systems can treat waste water and also generate electricity. He conducted his tests at the Fermentation Technology Lab of IIT, Kharagpur.
