Bio-Fuel Cells

This Hawai‘i Natural Energy Institute (HNEI) project has received over $1 million in funding under several federal government awards.  Bio-fuel cells (BFCs) are fuel cells that use enzymatic or microbial biocatalysts to convert chemical energy directly into electricity as a power source.  BFC technology has been advanced through a variety of characterization techniques, test cells, and modeling capabilities.

The primary HNEI contacts for the project are Michael J. Cooney and Bor Yann Liaw.  For details about this project, see the Bio-Fuel Cells Project pdf document.  For additional information on HNEI researchers and related HNEI research activities, see the BiomassBio-Renewable Resources, Biotechnology, and Fuel Cells research sections of our website.


Bio-Fuel Cells (overview)

HNEI researchers have been involved in a variety of research activities aimed at development of bio-fuel cells.   Bio-fuel cells are fuel cells that use enzymatic or microbial biocatalysts to convert chemical energy directly to electricity as power sources.

The primary contacts for bio-fuel cell research are Michael J. Cooney and Bor Yann Liaw.  For more specific details on HNEI activities in this subject area, see the Bio-Fuel Cells project section of our website.  Further information concerning biotechnology work and researchers can be found in the Biotechnology section of our website
