In the November issue of Popular Mechanics, a feature story listed the winners of the publication's 2005 "Breakthrough Awards." Included among them: Penn State environmental engineering professor Bruce Logan. His innovative fuel cell is powered by bacteria; it has the potential to clean up wastewater while generating hydrogen.

In this multimedia feature, WPSU-FM's Cynthia Berger visits Logan in his lab and gets the lowdown on his invention.
