Title: Applications of microbial fuel cells
Hakan Bermek focused mainly on microbial fuel cells in the past ten years. His expertise also covers specific topics the fields of molecular biotechnology, biomaterials, novel designs, and microbial enzymes. He and his colleagues investigated the application possibilities for microbial fuel cells in a wide variety of carbon sources as substrates, as well as investigating potential biosensor application. Recently, he is also working on novel microbial fuel cell designs in micro level, that can be easily printed rather than assembled. This approach can be a swift step towards helping commercialization of microbial fuel cells.
