An open-air microbial fuel cell developed by University of New Hampshire senior students recently won the Intel Award, the third time in seven years the school has won the award.

The fuel cell converts cow manure into electricity.

The project began in the fall of 2006, involving students enrolled in the university’s Senior Design course. Four business students and eight engineers conducted research during the fall semester while the spring session was spent putting the project and final presentation together.

Involved students and faculty hope to put the research to good use, assisting livestock producers in using the technology to manage their manure while producing alternative energy.
