Biorecovery of Precious Metals from Wastes and Conversion into Fuel Cell Catalyst for Electricity Production

Abstract:

Article Preview

Bio-manufacturing of nano-scale palladium was achieved using bacterial cells. Highly active Pd-catalyst (Bio-Pd) produced by an E. coli mutant gave power output in a fuel cell. Up to ~115% of the maximum power generation was achieved by electrodes of Bio-Pd catalysts from Escherichia coli, compared to that from a commercial-Pd electrode (~0.099 W). A bio-precious-metals (Bio-PM) catalyst made directly from an industrial reprocessing solution by the E. coli was also made into fuel cell electrodes and ~0.06W of maximum power generation was observed.
