A dream energy resource named ‘LOCUS’ Localised Operation of Bio-Cells Using Sewage was made headed by Manoj K. Mandelia and a team of five at the IIT-Kharagpur. The product uses a single chambered microbial fuel cell, which can not only treat waste water but also produce electricity in the process. It is unique in the domains of environmental, economic and social sustainability. LOCUS is currently a lab-scale model at IIT Kharagpur, but once ready for commercial use it has the potential to solve the most pertinent problems — water and electricity.
