U of Aberdeen Scientists Develop Photoelectrocatalytic Fuel Cell

Abstract:
Scientists at the University of Aberdeen are developing new technology that uses sunlight to treat dirty water and create electricity simultaneously. The sunlight-driven technology will clean ‘dirty’ water and will provide electricity as a by-product by a process similar to that exploited in fuel cells.

The three-year programme has been awarded to the Aberdeen-led consortium as part of the Micro and Nanotechnology Manufacturing Initiative. The project, Nanotechnology for Sustainable Water Purification, will receive up to 50% of the project value from the DTI and will bring together chemists, materials scientists and microbiologists from the University’s Departments of Chemistry and Plant & Soil Science, manufacturing technologists from OpTIC Technium (based in St Asaph, North Wales), and industrial end-users, Yorkshire Water and Scotoil Services Ltd.
