Jessica and Yianni’s small home only has a footprint of 540 square feet and has a green roof for added insulation. The tiny house sits on a five-acres of land on Sauvie Island which is about 15 minutes north of Portland. The house was remodeled with reclaimed materials and now serves it’s fourth role since it was built in the early 1940′s.

Incredible: this device uses just sunlight and wastewater to create hydrogen fuel!

The device is a hybrid, and combines a microbial fuel cell (MFC) with a type of solar cell called a photoelectrochemical cell (PEC). Bacteria degrade organic matter in the wastewater in the MFC component and generate electricity. This electricity is then delivered to the PEC component to aid the solar-powered splitting of water that generates hydrogen and oxygen.
