Bacteria could become a future source of electricity

In recent years, researchers have tried to capture the electrical current that bacteria generate through their own metabolism. So far, however, the transfer of the current from the bacteria to a receiving electrode has not been efficient at all. Now, they have achieved a slightly more efficient transfer of electrical current.

Do nanomaterials affect pollinating insects?

There is concern that pollinating insects are at risk due to nanomaterial exposure. Pollinating insects like bees or bumblebees are potentially exposed to nanomaterials via aerosols, the pollen of contaminated plants and water droplets. Managed pollinators may be additionally exposed in the hives due to direct application of nanomaterials by beekeepers.
