Nederlandse brandstofcel haalt energie uit moeras

AMSTERDAM – Een Nederlandse technologie belooft energie uit moerassen te kunnen halen. In afgelegen gebieden zou het proces al kunnen concurreren met de opbrengst uit zonnepanelen.

De cel, voluit de Plant-Microbiële Brandstofcel, haalt de energie uit de wisselwerking tussen levende plantenwortels en bodembacteriën.

Deze wortels leveren organisch materiaal op dat ontstaat via fotosynthese. Ongeveer 70 procent scheiden de wortels ongebruikt uit en bacteriën breken deze resten af. Hierbij komen elektronen  vrij die worden opgevangen door en elektrode.

De cel kan op dit moment 0,4 watt per vierkante meter begroeiing halen, meer dan wat biomassa opbrengt. De onderzoekers voorspellen dat dat in de toekomst kan oplopen tot 3,2 watt per vierkante meter.

Concurreren met zonnepanelen

In dat geval zou een gemiddeld huishouden genoeg stroom kunnen halen uit hun eigen dak van 100 vierkante meter. “Het huidige vermogen van de Plant-Microbiële Brandstofcel kan in afgelegen gebieden al economisch concurreren met zonnepanelen”, aldus de wetenschappers.

De methode heeft zich bewezen op kleine schaal. De onderzoekers willen via hun eigen startup Plant-e het proces uitbreiden naar grote schaal. Uit onderzoek zou blijken dat het systeem ook economisch en sociaal haalbaar is.

Complete daken die groene energie opleveren

Onderzoeker Marjolein Helder benadrukt dat er bijvoorbeeld geen ‘horizonvervuiling’ optreed zoals bij windmolens. Verder hoeft er ook geen natuur te wijken zoals bij stuwdammen.

Naar verwachting komt het eerste product van Plant-e in 2013 op de markt. Complete daken die groene energie opleveren zouden al in 2015 werkelijkheid kunnen worden.

    Christina was born in the royal castle Tre Kronor on 18 December S. 8 December] 1626. Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

    Most presidents would go out of their way to avoid such sensitive topics at a moment of extreme political stress.
