A Tiny Toothpick Treehouse in a Bitty Broccoli Tree

Make a Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) - Part II This instructable provides detailed directions for building your own microbial fuel cell using Jello, Saltwater and Septic Tank treatment. It's based on the information provided in Make a Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) - Part 1 This is a true fuel cell in that both the anaerobic and electrolyte media are replaceable and the salt bridge may be serviced as needed. The fuel cell consumes organic material and produces electricity and methane ( or more properly biogas include CO2 and other gasses ). We'll be using a traditional two cell design with a gelatin/salt bridge. I also intend to experiment with gelatinous nutrient medium in the anode chamber. The device has two relatively small chambers (approximately 100 mL). Now let's take a look at the materials we'll be using.
