Water desalination and green electricity production

Sea water desalination to get portable drinking water and green electricity at the same time

here is how it happens
Microbial desalination cell (MDC) is an emerging bio-electrochemical system. This is considered as one of the promising technologies for clean water and energy production. MDC technology is a derivative of the microbial fuel cell (MFC). This study reports bench-scale laboratory desalination using MDC loaded with granular coconut shell carbon, as a new electrode material in the anode compartment.
