Washington State University researchers have developed a sustainable wastewater treatment system that relies on electron-producing microbial communities to clean the water.  The work could someday lead to reduced reliance on the energy-intensive processes that are used to move and treat wastewater, which accounts for as much as two percent of the total electrical energy consumption in the United States.
