Using Microbes to Make 'Clean' Methane
Researchers at Stanford University and Pennsylvania State University are raising colonies of microorganisms, called methanogens, which have the remarkable ability to turn electrical energy into pure methane ? the key ingredient in natural gas. The scientists' goal is to create large microbial factories that will transform clean electricity from solar, wind, or nuclear power into renewable methane fuel and other valuable chemical compounds for industry.
