Can E. coli be used as a source of energy?

    Humans have long been using microbes to synthesize materials useful to humans. Researchers are now studying the possibility of using bacteria to produce biofuels when fed plant based fuels. They also think that bacteria can be used to soak up pollutants. I don’t think that the bacteria in question in any of these projects are E coli., a very common bacteria that occupies our intestines and helps us digest our food, but bacteria certainly could be the next environmental savior.
