the idea girl says

here’s a  little bacteria eating creature that can EAT methane, and it converts things to iron atoms!

quote

Outer membranes of Geobacter sulfurreducens incorporate electron-conducting protein filaments that transfer electrons generated by the digestion of food inside the cell to iron atoms outside the cell.

Application Ideas: Geobacter’s ability to metabolize various organic molecules and transform their chemical energy into electrical energy could be mimicked to produce new ways of generating electrical current and treating carbon rich waste materials.
