Paper Title:
A Novel Fuel Cell Catalyst for Clean Energy Production Based on a Bionanocatalyst
  Abstract

Nano-scale palladium was bio-manufactured via enzymatically-mediated deposition of Pd(II) from solution. The bio-accumulated metal palladium crystals were processed and applied onto carbon paper and tested as anodes in a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell for power production. Up to 85% and 31% of the maximum power generation was achieved by Bio-Pd catalysts made using two strains of bacteria, compared to commercial fuel cell grade Pt catalyst. Therefore, it is feasible to use bio-synthesized catalysts in fuel cells for electricity production.
